Overview

Arriving to the Palazzo delle Prigioni by the Bridge of Sighs, you will reach the famous prison where Casanova (1725-1798) was held captive in the middle of the 18th-century. The building was erected in the mid-16th Century to improve prisoner's comfort from the Institutional Chambers's housed prisons. In 1755, famous writer, traveler, adventurer, lover and seducer Casanova was arrested and thrown to that terrible prison, from which he escaped the following year, becoming in that act the legend of 18th-century Venice.
