The Bridge of Sighs is one of the best-known and most photographed tourist attractions in Venice. The main reason for this is that it is so close to the city center and because it has an interesting story behind it.
Contarini Del Bovolo Stairs represent the inevitable tourist attraction of Venice due to the unique display of the splendor of Venetian architecture. This building is actually a cylindrical shaped tower; it is made of bricks and stone; it is 26 meters high; with a diameter of 4.7 meters. What captures our imagination are the decorations on the tower that represent late Gothicism, i.e. the transition from Gothic period to Renaissance.
