The iconic Ventian gondolas bobbing on the lagoon, looking towards San Giorgio Maggiore. This classic view from San Marco was particularly tricky as I didn’t have my tripod with me at the time so I had to balance the camera on whatever I could find! This made composition very tricky but I’m happy with this classic view of Venice despite the challenges.
Venetian Gondolas : About Piazza San Marco and St Mark’s Basilica:
Saint Mark’s Basilica is the most famous of the Venice’s churches and one of the best known examples of Italo-Byzantine architecture. situated in the bustling Piazza San Marco. Originally the chapel of the Doge, the basilica has been the city’s cathedral since 1807, when it became the seat of the Patriarch of Venice. The original structure of the church dates from roughly 1060 to 1100, and most subsequent work has been to restore existing design rather than replace elements. Due to the extravagant design, featuring opulent gold mosaics and intricate carving, the basilica has become a symbol of Venetian wealth and power and gained the nickname Chiesa d’Oro (Church of gold).
