Highlights near Venice

The Bridge of Sighs

As it's one of the most popular sights in Venice, you may have to wait (and/or fight) for the perfect spot to view the Bridge of Sighs, but it's so beautiful that it's worth the effort. Part of the Doge's palace, the bridge leads to the prison, and it was said that prisoners 'sighed' as they viewed Venice for the last time before incarceration. The bridge is a must-see when in Venice and the view from inside the palace itself is not to be missed.
