Piazza San Marcos was crowded with tourists and vendors and fussy locals. One scolded Cliff who grabbed some crackers from a trash can to feed the pigeons.
While on the Piazza we saw the majestic St. Marks Basilica and Palazzo Ducale di Venezia (The Doge's Palace, home of the Doge which is the word for Duke.
The exterior of the basilica is adorned with mosaic murals and life size angel's statues.
We walked the narrow streets and in each corner encountered wonders. It was so nice to be in a place with no cars around us. That is what is so neat about Venice. It is the ideal place to take walks.
