Venice itself is a monument, an open-air museum. St. Mark’s Square is really the heart of Venice, mostly because of its location on the banks of the Grand Canal, and because of the great number of beautiful, historical monuments located there; St. Mark’s Basilica majestically symbolizes the lagoon and enshrines the city’s history; The Doge’s Palace, Venice, has façades which date from 1309-1424, designed by Giovanni and Bartolomeo Buon. The Bridges: the Rialto Bridge, the Accademia Bridge, the Bridge of Sighs, the Scalzi Bridge,
seen on foot or with a ride in the typical Venetian gondolas they are a fascinating dive into history
