Best Bridges of the World

Ponte dei Sospiri, Venice, Italy

Often touted as one of the most beautiful bridges in the world, and certainly one of the most photographed, Venice’s Ponte dei Sospiri, or Bridge of Sighs, was constructed around 1600. It was built to connect the old prison and interrogation rooms in the Palazzo Ducale to the newer prison across the canal, and its name reportedly comes from the sighs of the prisoners who crossed its expanse. Legend has it that if a couple kisses under the bridge while on a gondola at sunset, they will enjoy eternal love.
