Venice is a most amazing city and one that is a definite must see. Unfortunately it is extremely commercialized city and I have no plans to return there. I was also not impressed with the Basilica of San Marco. The religious authorities wanted $2 just to see the altar. This kind of thing leaves a bad taste in my mouth. What makes Venice Venice, of course, are the canals. What I have to say about Venice can best be said through the photos that I took.
