Sì, lo so, ma non ho resistito… Sono giunto qui nella zona delle Carampane in una sorta di pellegrinaggio laico e, diciamolo, un po’ boccaccesco.

I came here to the Carampane area on a kind of secular pilgrimage and, let's face it, a bit mouth-watering. Because itchy stories, in us little boys, always arouse particular interest. I heard about it by chance, from local friends and, curiously, I documented myself. The Bridge of Tits, which connects Santa Croce to San Polo, is located in front of a palace that, in the time of the Serenissima, was used as a closed house. A place of perdition, therefore, a red light area, a post-retype. yes, I mean, a brothel. Courtesans who devoted themselves to the world's oldest art used to wear succinct dresses and wedge boots of immense height, raise their skirts showing their "merchant" and, from the windows, discover the breasts to attract customers. I just try to imagine the coming on this bridge of those who sought comfort, in a crescendo of impulses to be appreatore. I guess, and I'm not mistaken to believe, that there would be a crowd even today. ah... little known by tourists, the bridge is really beautiful and quaint.

Translated, the Ponte delle Tette means "bridge of breasts." The bridge, which stands in the former red light district in the district of San Polo, has its name because prostitutes with bare breasts once advertised for suitors there.
Venice is absolutely stunning. Must visit. Ponte delle tette is a simple bridge over the canal but quite famous.
Very expensive. Very beautiful. Very hsrd sell
