Venice – Bridge of Sighs restoration done at last.

Three years ago Venice thrust itself into controversy during its restoration on the Bridge of Sighs by selling advertising on the space that covered the bridge.  Many people felt it was an outrageous eyesore, flashy modern-day billboards detracting from the area.

I don’t know about you, but I’m not sure something colorful and catchy is any worse than piles of scaffolding obstructing a site I had been looking forward to see.  It seems that each trip I take, I must brace myself for disappointment at least once.  At least the directors were thoughtful enough to add a clear blue sky to the background and the tourists seemed as snap happy as ever.

Luckily travelers need to worry no longer, the Bridge is complete and returned back to the city.
