Today, custom holds that lovers should kiss under the bridge in order to seal their fate as soul mates. Oddly, the bridge got its name from the sullen prisoners' exasperations as they were ferried across the bridge, from the prison to the courts. Despite its somber purpose, the bridge actually looks very romantic from the outside-- perfect for a great photo.

Venice is beautiful and romantic! This water city filled up with beautiful gondolas and very nice and classy Italian touch around. To go around, you can take water bus or also water taxi which might cost more. Try to find some good restaurants with a view to the river. #happynewyear #venezia #italybeauties
Bridge of Sighs in Venice is undoubtedly one of the most photographed places in the world. Visitors come from all over the world to take a gondola ride under the bridge.
Not far from St. Mark's Square is the sigh bridge of Venice's famous sights. The Bridge of Sighs is part of the Governors Palace. It spans two buildings and is used to connect the Governors Palace and the prison. The prisoners who have been sentenced to death will look at the outside world when they pass through this fully enclosed bridge. The prisoners cant help but send out The lament of the end of life, hence the name "sigh bridge."
There is another legend in Venice. If the lovers kiss each other on the gondola under the bridge of sighs at sunset, they will get the eternal love forever. This legend makes the Bridge of Sighs one of the most romantic bridges in the world. Standing on the bridge of sighs, you should be able to truly understand that one step ahead is hell, and one step back is heaven. I finally understand why Shakespeare, who has never been to Venice, has a soft spot for Shuicheng.
The Bridge of Sighs must be shot in the morning to not backlight, and once the big troops arrive at the Bridge of Sighs, they basically take a group photo.
