Venice, Italy Europe Vacations

Never was a thoroughfare so aptly named as the Grand Canal, the glories of Venetian architecture lining its banks. Then, hiding in narrow backstreets, you'll find neighbourhood churches lined with Veroneses and priceless marbles and Tiepolo's glimpses of heaven on homeless-shelter ceilings.

For a thousand years the city was one of the most enduring mercantile sea powers on the face of the earth. Today the brilliance and influence have long since faded, leaving a town of tarnished glories, out of time and out of place, so achingly beautiful it's hard not to look for the back of the set.
