More About Hotels near Bridge of Sighs...

What's the Bridge of Sighs?

The Bridge of Sighs is an enclosed bridge that crosses over the Rio di Palazzo between Prigioni Nuove --  also known as the New Prison --  and its interrogation rooms. It is made of white limestone, and its windows are barred. Historically, it was the bridge that convicts would cross when heading to prison, and thus, they would get their last look at Venice.  

Which Hotels Have the Best View Near the Bridge of Sighs?

Because The Bridge of Sighs is technically part of the prison, it isn't really a place that a hotel would want a view of. However, the Luna Hotel Baglioni is just a couple of minutes walk away, and it has spectacular views of the water.
