Strategic
2/2020 • Pariskunnat
The name of the bridge is understood to come from boats mooring nearby to offload straw ( paglia) in the old days. This bridge is a strategic place to view the bridge of sighs. Many tourists can be seen standing on the bridge to take photos of the bridge of sighs.

Busy Bridge - Too Many People Stopping
9/2019
If you want to see the Bridge of Sighs (Ponte dei Sospiri), take the tour of the Doge's palace and see it how it was meant to be seen, from the inside looking out. TOo many people hang out on this bridge and sometimes make it impassible. While the city of Venice has made it not permissible to stop and loiter on a bridge, it is not consistently enforced. There are times of the day where it would almost be better to take the vaparetto around.

Busy, busy busy!
8/2019
The Ponte della Paglia is a photo opportunity point for The Bridge of Sighs. To say the least it becomes very busy with many tourists admiring the aforementioned bridges or just taking selfies. It is said to have been a stopping point for traders unloading straw from their boats. Located close to Doge's Pallace and Saint Marks Square it is at the centre of the tourists experience.

Gets very busy
8/2019
This spot does get very busy as it is one of the first attractions you will see when coming to venice via the port, many tourists will stop to take pictures as we did. However it is worth waiting for a gap to get full view of this amazing attraction, the architecture is very attractive and is one of the key things to see when visiting Venice.

Good while walking past
6/2019 • Kaverit
Like almost everything else in venice, this is an impressive piece of Italian engineering. It's quite unusual to see an enclosed bridge in an ancient stone building. There isn't really much to see here, so this is best visiting on your way to somewhere else in Venice. There is also some interesting history behind the bridge, so it's worth doing a bit of research beforehand.

Straw Bridge or Ponte de la Paja is always crowded! How many people can fit on this foot bridge?
7/2019 • Pariskunnat
You’ve got to cross this bridge and others as you hop over the various canals along the Riva degli Schiavoni. Thus, at some point in your stay you’ll end up standing on this Straw Bridge.

Its name is derived from the unloading of straw at this point which was used in making roofs of Venetian houses, for feeding animals and making beds.
So many people stand on this bridge. I do wonder to myself about how much load it can bear!

But it seems at any time during daylight, you’ve got to jostle your way across if your sole intention is simply to cross. Simply stick to the side ‘away’ from the interior canal as tourists stop here to photograph the Bridge of Sighs and they tend not to linger for too long.

Just have some patience and you’ll get through soon enough.

Bridge is Nice but crowded with poeple
6/2019 • Pariskunnat
The view of the Bridge of sighs is very nice just be prepared to be in a sea of people from the viewpoint. I would recommend going early in the morning to avoid large crowds.

A view of the Bridge of Sighs
6/2019 • Pariskunnat
We crossed the Ponte Della Paglia Bridge several times during our visit to Venice on a very busy Saturday in June. The bridge is popular with tourists because it gives a good view of the ‘Bridge of Sighs’ another iconic landmark of Venice.
Although busy, if you wait patiently, the visitor will eventually find themselves at the railings looking along the canal towards the bridge of sighs although we found photographing this to be problematical as it is almost always partly in shade.
Later, we found that if you go to the foot of the bridge under the colonnaded passageway you can get a good shot not only along the canal but also across the canal with its passing Gondoliers to the adjacent colonnaded passage way.

Come here for the view of the Bridge of Sighs
5/2019 • Pariskunnat
You come here for the view of the Bridge of Sighs. The view is great. But the Ponte della Paglia will be insanely crowded in the middle of the day - even out of season.
