Just watching the others who have chosen to go in them was entertainment plenty ...
... and at this time of the day wasn’t too crowded with tourists, so we got to appreciate it. At one end is St. Mark’s Basilica and the impressive Campanile of St. Mark’s Church. The Doge’s Palace is also a lovely, if imposing building in a gothic style. It’s now a museum, which we elected not to visit, as our time in Venice is limited and the queues were already rather large.
There weren’t as many pigeons in St. Mark’s Square ...
