Venice, Italy is a fairy tale city that rises from the sea on 119 small islands, separated by the 160 canals that dominate Venetian life. Known as the “Queen of the Adriatic,” this glorious city was once the world’s center of trade and commerce. Now, 500 years later, explore the gorgeous decay of its spectacular churches and palaces, the awe-inspiring private villas and public museums, and the quiet beauty of its gondolas and canals in this Art History & Travel Documentary. Visit Venice’s blend of Byzantine splendor and Western imagination through the eyes of its most prominent artists, architects, and poets in this edition of the Museum City Series.

 

Saint Mark’s Basilica was built in 829 to honor St. Mark, the city’s patron saint. Close by is the pink marble Palace of the Doges, the Sansovino Library, the towering Campanile, and the landmark Clock, all around what has been called “the most beautiful room in Europe,” the Piazza San Marco.
