#1207 – The Last View…

The shot everybody wants to take is from Riva degli Schiavoni; an alternative view is from the Calle Canonica. However a lesser known view of the Ponte dei Sospiri is from the inside.

This is often the last view of the outside world that prisoners got as they were marched from the Doge’s Palace to the cells over the Bridge of Sighs.
