I felt it necessary to add "the sinking city" to my title because we experienced this first hand! As soon as we stepped into our hotel, I noticed the floor was a little, um, slanted. One side of the building's foundation was SINKING! I knew this would make for interesting times after a few drinks.
Still, Venice has a certain charm to it. And, I think Krystal put it best when she called Venice, "a parody of itself." So true! I felt like I was in an amusement park. But it was fo' real.
Take a look at this.
And see...I found Pinocchio! IT IS A THEME PARK.
St. Mark's Basilica
Having been to Italy before, and being totally infatuated with Rome, Venice didn't charm as much as I expected it would. It can be done in a day, and should still be seen (OF COURSE), but it's not the best place in Italy. My heart still belongs to Rome! But second place goes to Verona, for which the next post will be dedicated (stay tuned)...
