The traditional Venetian gondola has been used since the beginning of the republic of Venice in order to get from one place to another on the sea and through the canals.
The Lion of Venice is also known as the Lion of Saint Mark; maybe this is because it is situated in Saint Mark’s Square in the historic city centre, and it serves as the city’s symbol since it came to Venice in the 12th century.
The column on which it sits was built in the later 13th century (1268).
The Lion of Venice in St Mark’s Square next to the Ducale Palace dates to 300 BC. The book that is under the winged lion sculpture’s paws was added later.
As you do some sightseeing in the city, you will notice this landmark and symbol of the charming city when you look up one of two huge monumental granite columns in the Piazzo.
