Torture private hangings

Kathryn B, June 2016

The noose for interrogation, torture and private hangings. Other prisoners would be held in the second floor boxes, held in the dark and listen to the screams. This would make it easier to get information from them.

The bridge of Sighs Ponte dei Sospiri

Kathryn B, June 2016

Legend has it that prisoners would sigh as they took their last look at Venice during their walk to their execution. Actually, by the time the new prison was built the executions were no longer held at the Doge's Palace.

Typical cell in Doges cells.

Kathryn B, June 2016

Cell could hold up to 6 people. The lower cells would even flood. No wonder prisoners didn't get out alive.

A great tour guide for children and adults alike. Very entertaining, full of knowledge, and adept at capturing the kids' attention.

Mirroring doors on each side of the room looked like wardrobes when the doors were shut.
