"I stood in Venice on the Bridge of Sighs,
A palace and a prison on each hand..."
Lord Byron "Chile Harold's Pilgrimage"
You can read all the details of my magical tour of Venice on my blogs. Every moment there was a wonder: the silence, the play of water reflections on the buildings, the beautiful gondolas, the historic buildings. Venice was the ultimate experience.
"Where Venice sate in state, throned on her hundred isles...
She looks a sea Cybele, fresh from ocean,
Rising with her tierra of proud towers
At any distance, with majestic motion,
A ruler of the waters and their powers."
And the incredible mask shops!
