There are so many beautiful elaborate gold mosaics in Saint Mark’s Basilica in San Marco Square near the Grand Canal and the Doge’s Palace of Venice; these mosaics were severely damaged by a fire in the early 12th century however some survived for you to see when you decide to visit Venice during the holidays.
The Lion of Venice came to symbolize the charming city after it became a part of its St Mark’s Square in the 12th century. It is definitely a sight to see when you are touring the islands of the romantic city of Venice when on vacation.
The Palazzo Ducale began to decay and deteriorate in the late 19th century so the government funded its restorations. Many of the previous artefacts were sent to the Museo dell Opera and replaced by other works of art and furnishings.
You can see all of the originals at the Opera Museum when you are exploring Venice’s historic heritage.
There are three categories of Venetian cuisine that you will find throughout Venice; the coastal area cuisine, the plains cuisine, and the mountains cuisine. In the plains area, you will mainly be served grilled meats mostly in the form of a barbecue, along with either grilled polenta or potatoes or a variety of vegetables.
