  • The prison palace is the building that is connected to the Ducal Palace by the Bridge of Sighs. It's a beautiful building but it's not more than prison itself. The visit to the Ducal Palace also includes the entrance to this palace.

  •  Palazzo delle Prigioni is a building next to the Doge's Palace and a narrow canal apart.  The stone, lined arch is a beautiful building, but it is actually a prison. The Palazzo Ducale is connected by a bridge of sighs. It is said that the sinners who go to the prison through the bridge of Sighs from the Doge's Palace were named a bridge of sighs because they sighed at the beautiful Venetian cityscape from the last seen bridge.

  • Located close to San Marco Square it is must place to visit and take photos at views of the outside of the Bridge of Sighs and also the beginning of the Grand Canal with its gondolas
  • Very interesting. Lots of stairs!
