St. Mark's Basilica is absolutely beautiful. I know I said in my Florence posts that The Duomo is my favorite but this might be tied with it now! The detail and colors are just so pretty.
St. Mark's Campanile is the bell tower of the basilica and actually has an elevator to get to the top (yay for modern advances/no more stairs)! On an afternoon while exploring Venice by myself while Stacy was resting due to a cold, I ventured to the top of the bell tower and it was so worth it. The views of Venice were beautiful!
Venice is a beautiful and unique city and I highly recommend a visit there if you ever have the chance. It was crowded during the day but surprisingly not crowded at the restaurants at night. I recommend May as a great month to go - warm weather and before summer vacations start for the Europeans!!!
Have you been to Venice? I have one more post from our visit to Murano!
