In the old days, it was only the wealthy Venetians who were able to afford the Frittelle alla Veneziana dessert in Venice.
Nowadays, you can find this delicious sweet treat at almost any local confectionery in the city.
The marbles, pillars, the famous 4 bronze horse statues are all some of the valuables that were looted from Constantinople in the 13th century in the Fourth Crusade and are now found in the renowned main square of Venice, San Marco Piazza.
The Bridge of Sighs was constructed in the early 17th century linking the Doge’s Palace on Mark’s Square to the prison building structure. It was named so due to the sighs the prisoners made when they looked their last look of freedom out to the sea through the small windows as they went into the prison.
