I stood in Venice, on the Bridge of Sighs,
A palace and a prison on each hand,
I saw from out of the wave of her structure's raise,
As from the strokes of the enchanter's wand,
A thousand years their cloudy wings expand,
Around me, and a dying Glory smiles,
O'er the far times, when many a subject wand,
Look'd to the winged Lion's marble pines,
Where Venice sate in state, throned on her hundred isles.
by : Lord Byron ( George Gordon Noel Byron )
Venezzia - 21/ 05/2007 - It was a long line, "lange schlange!" 10 o'clock in the morning at last the bus boat leaves. I got my video camera and Michael with our normal camera. After 100 kilometers away driving from Verona we reached Venice.
I can't believe my eyes that i am in Venice! being in Venice is such a wonderful experience. Never in my life i saw such a beautiful city, so enchanting and like they say... once you see Venice, you will fall in love with it, and we did.
Piazza San Marco - St. Mark's Square. Is the main square of Venice. I will never forget this beautiful city, the bell tower the Ponte di Rialto, and everything!
the poem by Lord Byron said it all, i've been to Venice, and i will never forget this trip in Italy. My husband and I hope someday we can go back there again... and fall in love again and again to Venice...
