Piazza San Marco, 1, 30122 Venezia VE, Italy
It looks very nice (preferably from outside), it is surely one of the symbols of Venice, present on dozens of postcards, photos and calendars. Slightly hidden behind the building, it can be visited during sightseeing of the Doge's Palace, and can be viewed - the best way - from the marina. Lots of tourists try to capture him (and of course himself) in the pictures taken from the side of lagoon.
This must be one of the most visited places in Venice. This may be viewed after crossing St Mark square and up on the first bridge on the seaward side. A good idea is to actually cross the Bridge of Sighs after viewing the Doge's palace. Here one may also see the dungeons where the prisoners were kept.
Don’t get me wrong it interesting... but not to the extent made out in the rating. Definitely worth a look, but there are many many more incredible sites to see in Rome...
Crossing this bridge is part of a visit to the Doge's palace. The bridge is a fully enclosed dark passageway with just two small windows on each side, through which prisoners would supposedly take a last look at Venice and freedom and, well, sigh. The inside is like a subway tunnel but it is an experience and it is part of an interesting museum. However, if history, period weaponry/armour and other artifacts, stunningly ornated rooms, a stunning courtyard and a dank prison are not your thing then just appreciate it from the outside.
Viewed at best advantage from the bridge just down the canal however for this reason the bridge is often packed with tourists however just to the side of the bridge is a little area which only a few people choose to go to where the view is much less obstructed and provides for much better shots of the bridge. In the few minutes I spent here at least three people with professional grade photography equipment came to this spot but it is still much less crowded than the above bridge.
