Venice! oh, how I adore Venice! It is extremely Beautiful. It's so charming with all it's winding streets and over 400 bridges. We would just stroll the streets for hours eating gelato and talking. Every where you looked was another post card- esque snap shot. The most beautiful building was Piazza San Marco, with spangled spires, Byzantine domes, mosaics and marble. It was built to house the remains of St. Mark. According to legend his body was stolen from Egypt and smuggled to Venice in a pork barrel. His body now rests under the high altar.
