Ponte della Paglia – one of most beautiful bridges in Venice

Ponte della Paglia, known as Bridge of Straw, is one of  the most beautiful bridges in Venice, Italy. The current structure dates from 1847, and the original structure was built in 1360. The original structure was the oldest stone bridge in Venice. The name of the bridge is considered to come from boats mooring nearby to offload straw (paglia). The bridge is a common place from which to view the Bridge of Sighs.

The bridge is not only a historical sight, but it also connects the Castello District and San Marco areas.

Last but not least, is the Bridge of Sighs (Ponte dei Sospiri). This small but picturesque bridge, made in baroque style, connects the Doge’s Palace – the former courtroom with a prison. A legend appeared saying that if lovers, while gliding in a gondola, kiss at sunset under the bridge, their love will last forever.
