A Look at Venice


Hello everyone, 
A look back to the past. Our first stop on our trip was Venice, Italy. This is the original post.
During my vacation I took photographs to share with everyone.  I thought the perfect way to show photos of each port of call would be to create a mosaic.  SO!!!!!!

Please enjoy Venice, Italy Monday July 26, 2010.

Venice is a wonderful place to visit.  St. Mark's Square is amazing.   The heart and soul of Venice, with palatial arcades and charming cafes.  The Byzantine facade of St Mark's Cathedral was originally constructed in the 9th century and the gondoliers are standing around waiting for their next customer. There are many churches in Venice. Visiting the inside of exquisite Doges' Palace, the former residence of the dukes of Venice and the seat of the Venetian government for 800 years was fabulous. Climbing the Golden Staircase to marvel at the paintings of Tintoretto and Veronese and crossing over the Bridge of Sighs to reach the prison and view the cells was like stepping back in time.  As the story is told.  The prisoners would walk through the passages to their cells and would see the beautiful sight of the island of  S. Giorgio and freedom for the last time.

Hope you enjoyed a snippet of the sights in Venice. 

I am joining Mary at Little Red House  for Mosaic Monday.  Please hop back and see more mosaics. 

Thank you again for visiting My Cozy Corner

    เกม Candy Dreams ของทางค่าย Evoplay Slot เกมนี้มาในธีมลูกอมและขนมหวานสไตล์เดียวกับ Candy Crush
    แต่จะเน้นโทนสีพาสเทล ฟ้าอ่อน ชมพูอ่อน เหมือนขนมสายไหมและมาชเมลโล่ ให้ความรู้สึกหวานแหววและฟูนุ่มเบาสบาย สาว ๆ เห็นแล้วน่าจะชอบเกมนี้ไม่น้อย
