The decoration of the St Mark’s Basilica has changed many times throughout the centuries even though its basic structure has roughly remained unchanged.
Visit Venice during the vacation and explore its culture and historic landmarks.
The Carnival of Venice began just after the mid-12th century in honour of the victory of Serenissima Repubblica.
The locals began to dance in St Mark’s Square in the center of the city and became an annual tradition.
Since the 1950s, the population of Venice has decreased by almost 50% which is a good thing since there is absolutely no room for more housing on these little waterways and canals in the center of the city!
