I was in Italy with my colleagues on a business trip, so there was not much of time for sight seeing. We only had an afternoon of sight seeing time so we decided hope onto a train and head for Venice.
We went searched and asked around for the famous Piazza San Marco as it was our first trip to Italy. And my deep impression of Venice is mainly from Angelina Jolie's Movie "The Tourist" and of course other attractions.
I have always wanted to visit Venice with my wife as it is a very romantic city but here i am with my colleagues instead of my wife.
Piazza San Marco is magnificent. As soon as you walk into the Piazza, your eyes are automatically drawn to the beautiful architectural facade of the churches. It is a very busy place, not much of vehicles as in Venice is surrounded by water so its water transportation as primary.
The beautiful building surrounding the Piazza are Galleria Dell’Accademia, Basilica Della SS. Anuziata, Museo Archeologico Nazionale and Spedale Degli Innocenti. There are also many cafes where you can sit and enjoy a cup of latte and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
Please be careful of your personal belongs when you are there. Heard that there are cases of pickpockets. And also be careful of which period of the year you are going to Venice, this is because of the flooding issues. Venice is surrounded by water, therefore when its the season of sea level rising, Venice will be submerge in water.
