    The most beautiful living room in Europe is indeed well-known! It was the happiest and most exciting stop of the whole trip to Italy! The building is very beautiful. There are many pigeons here. They are not afraid of people. They will fly to you after a while. In the evening, the lights are brilliant, and some restaurants invite bands to perform at the door, piano, violin, saxophone and so on. People can't help dancing. They can also sit down, although it's more expensive. It's also good to stop and enjoy without eating. Friends have come to take a picture more than 20 years ago, more than 20 years later today in the same position, the same pose, holding the same pigeon to take photos, how wonderful it feels!

    Venice Water City is the essence of the Renaissance, the only city in the world without a car. God shed tears here, but made it more sparkling and tender, just like a romantic dream floating on the blue wave. Venice has the reputation of "born of water, beautiful because of water, prosperous because of water" and enjoys the reputation of "water city," "water city," "Baidao city," "Queen of Adriatic Sea" "Bridge city" and so on. Venice's style is always inseparable from "water", winding lanes, flowing waves, it seems like a romantic dream floating on the blue waves, poetry and painting linger for a long time. Venice's history began in 453 A.D., when farmers and fishermen in Venice fled the knife-addicted nomads and fled to this small island in the Adriatic Sea. Venice looks like a dolphin. The city covers less than 7.8 square kilometers, but consists of 118 small islands, with 177 canals as densely covered as cobwebs. Located in the northeast of Italy, Venice is a world-famous water town and a famous historical and cultural city in Italy. There are many historic sites in the city, including various churches, bell towers, monasteries and palaces. The waterway is the longest street that runs through Venice. It divides the city into two parts. Waterway sightseeing is one of the best ways to visit Venice's scenery. There are many famous buildings on both sides of the Taiwan Strait. There are footprints left by writers, painters and musicians everywhere. St. Mark's Square is the central square of Venice. To the east of the Square, St. Mark's Church is magnificent and magnificent. The Governor's Palace is the official residence of the former Governor of Venice. The halls are decorated with oil paintings, murals and marble carvings. It is very luxurious. The whole city of Venice is built in the water. The waterways are streets and lanes. Ships are the only means of transportation in Venice. The local boat Gondola has its own characteristics. You may try it in Venice.

    Entering through this gate is the symbol of Venice, St. Mark's Square. One of the towering pillars is the symbol of Venice, the flying lion, and the other is the guardian of San Teodoro. Four years ago, most of the buildings on the square were enclosed in maintenance. Now the enclosure has been removed, and the ancient and elegant buildings are in full view. Plazza San Marco, also known as Venice Central Plaza, has always been the public activity center of Venice's political, religious and traditional festivals. The square was built to commemorate the twelve saints of Jesus and to collect trophies. It was surrounded by fine Renaissance buildings, including the Duke's House, St. Mark's Cathedral, St. Mark's Bell Tower, the old and new Executive Mansion Building and the Napoleonic Wing Building connecting the two buildings. There are many shops and cafes around the square. It's the best place for Venice to hang out and rest.

    For small tourists with limited time, even if you urge them, they still follow their own pace step by step, slowly let you watch anxiously. But also thank others for their meat mushroom personality, so many skilled craftsmen. Glass products handed down from the twelfth century, hats from the eighteenth century, handmade dolls from hundreds of years old... Machines really can't replace fingertip temperatures.

    St. Mark's Square is a must. Feeding pigeons is fun. Be sure to spend some money on the Bell Tower. Looking down from the bell tower at the Grand Canal and Lido Island, wow, wow, beautiful. For those who want to enter the church, remember to deposit their shoulder bags free of charge next to them. The Governor's Palace and Sighing Bridge are actually beside the square, which is very convenient. We had dinner in the evening and unfortunately met the black shop in Venice. The regular Italian restaurant serves the dishes according to the menu. The dishes in this restaurant are more than 10 times the weight of the menu. I didn't realize for a moment that it was a pit. After eating a few pieces, he realized that he might have been pitted and asked them how much it cost. He gave them a bill of more than 231 euros (30 or 40 euros for three people in other restaurants). I threatened to call the police, and after many theories, they were reduced to 100 Euros. Remember not to go to this black shop. The name of the restaurant on the Google map and the dining board is Riovenice, and the entrance sign is Ristorante.

    St. Mark's Square was first built in the 9th century, when it was only a small square in front of St. Mark's Cathedral. Mark is the author of the Gospel of Mark in the Bible. The Venetians regard him as a patron saint. Legend has it that two Venetian businessmen smuggled the remains of St. Mark from Alexander, Egypt, to Venice in 828, and built a church for St. Mark in the same year. There was a tomb of St. Mark in the church. The cathedral was named after St. Mark, and the square in front of the cathedral was named "St. Mark Plaza".

It rained that day and the pictures were not so good. Fortunately, the rain is not big, the main attractions are still seen.

    Venice's iconic attractions, to Venice can not be less than St. Mark's Square. The biggest attraction of the square is, of course, St. Mark's Cathedral. The magnificent Majuk paintings with gold murals are amazing. Never just look at the outside eaves. It's worth savoring inside. The bell tower on the square is the commanding height of the whole city. It overlooks the whole city and is worth a visit. The Governor's Palace is another point of view and has been established as a museum.
