Venice was really beautiful. We visited for a day and that was really enough as it was towards the end of our trip and I was ready to begin winding down on the Italian Riveria. Venice as you can probably guess has many, many bridges! Venice is a city of bridges connecting 118 islands.
|HAPPY to be traveling through Italia!! When do we return?|
Upon receiving sentence the prisoners were immediately moved to the prison via the Bridge of Sighs. The name was given as Prisoners would sigh at their final view of beautiful Venice, through the window, before being taken down to their cells. From walking through the bridge I can attest, very little could be seen of Venice through the steel bars covering the windows. One can only imagine what it would be like to spend time in the dark, hard cells in the 1600s ....
There were tons of people in Venice. We stayed at a former monastery that had been used as an orphanage, boarding school, and student quarters. It was rich in history and still had all the antique printing equipment on display!
