How gorgeous. I want to visit.

Kate said...

Have you read "Bridge of Sighs" by Robert (?) Russo? Fabulous!!

Heather said...

Gorgeous! Why is it called that? Does it literally sigh? Is there anything sadder than a bridge that sighs?

Venice really looks like something out of a movie set -- it's hard to believe it's even a real place. Totally did not disappoint. Great shot!

Literary Feline said...

Beautiful. I've always wanted to visit Venice.

Diane - Do it, it's incredible!

Kate - Yes! I loved it almost as much as his "Empire Falls."

Heather - Actually it's really sad. Years and years ago one building as a prison, the prisoners were taken across the bridge when they were led to their execution. So tragic.

Meg - It did! It was just surreal to be there.

Literary Feline - It's an Italy must!

NC Sue - Thanks!
