Bridge of Sighs
Legend has it that if you
kiss on a gondola at sunset under the Bridge of Sighs,
will be assured "eternal love"
— we kissed there on
and have been happily married for over 25 years :)
Bridge of Sighs crosses the Rio di Palazzo, a small canal off
the Grand Canal in Venice. In the 19th century,
Lord Byron gave the bridge its name because it
rooms of the old Doge's palace
view of Venice out of the windows was the last thing the convicts
saw before being locked up — hence the "sigh."
Other less-famous Bridge of Sighs are located in
Britain (there are three of 'em), one in New York, one in Peru and
one in Frankfurt, Germany.
St. Mark's Square & Bell Tower
Stroll through Venice's famous pigeon-filled landmark, St. Mark's Square, otherwise
known as Piazza San Marco (photo above). It's popular with Italians
and foreign tourists alike — and a FUN place to relax over a cappuccino
and people-watch :)
St. Mark's Basilica
St. Mark's Basilica (The Basilica
di San Marco) is the most famous church in
Venice. It is located in St. Mark's Square, near the Doge's Palace (photo above).
