... in the roof. It seems like just moments since we were dragging our suitcases up these narrow alleyways, arriving as Venice virgins. Now, we have been bewitched by the Venetian spell and bid the city a presto.

Inside the Baptistery is crowned by a beautiful golden mosaic dome depicting another "Last Judgment." Again we were fascinated by the way Hell is depicted. The large ...
