I couldn't help but sigh as I visited this very photogenic bridge in Venice. It was completely crowded. But I am still glad I got to have my photo op there!

This bridge can be extremely busy and crowded because people stop to look at The Bridge of Sighs and take photographs. Try to time your visit before or after the day trippers and you may have the chance to appreciate the view.
