There is no other city in the world quite as magical as Venice. It’s most well known for its winding canals connected by ornately decorated bridges, where the sounds of gondoliers echo through the streets.
St Mark’s Square, known locally as Piazza San Marco, is the principal public square of Venice. On one end you have the iconic St Mark’s Basilica (also free to visit), and on the other is the Museo Correr, a grand palace filled with classical paintings.
Gaze Upon the Golden Mosaics of St Mark’s Basilica
The mosaics date as far back as the 13th century and represent important stories from the Bible, such as the Creation of the Earth, the story of Cain and Abel, Noah’s Ark, the story of Abraham, Joseph, and Moses, as well as the Tower of Babel.
