"Casanova's Cell"

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, the famous writer, traveler, adventurer, lover, Casanova was imprisoned here, from which he escaped the following year, becoming in that act the legend of 18th-century Venice. This historic site also hosts concerts and other cultural events regularly.
