Bridge of Sighs


Only in Venice...

If there's one thing I've learnt about the Venetians in my now three or four visits to their beautiful city, it's that they have an unerring ability to cover alsmot anything that visitors might want to see in advertising. I don't think I have ever seen the Rialto Bridge unadorned by a banner of some kind or another. On my first visit I remember being alarmed by the appearance of Big Ben in St Mark's Square - which was of course simply an illustration on the covering being used to hide the work being done on the clock tower in the Square. And the above is how the Bridge of Sighs currently looks: rather space-age actually.
