I visited Venice briefly in 2006 as part of the European tour during the World Cup soccer fever; part of that whirlwind tour was also our honeymoon, which makes it all the more memorable. Touristy as it may be, Venice will never fail to impart a sense of timelessness and romance. The view from the Bridge of Sighs was the last view of Venice that convicts saw before their imprisonment. The bridge name, given by Lord Byron in the 19th century, comes from the suggestion that prisoners would sigh at their final view of beautiful Venice out the window before being taken down to their cells.* There is something eerily romantic about this scene. Be sure to check out the complete Merchant of Venice series.
