Churches of Venice
The Grand Canal with its bobbing gondolas winds itself around the city making a triumphant appearance at the unforgettable vista of Piazza San Marco, which boasts its campanile, the Gothic Doges Palace, Byzantine St. Mark's Basilica, and the ever-elegant, pigeon-filled piazza. The Bridge of Sighs that links the palace to the gloomy old prisons overlooks the stunning Santa Maria della Salute, San Giorgio Maggiore and Del Redentore churches. The island of Torcello is the site of a time-warped Byzantine cathedral. You will not be disappointed by your visit to these places.
