  Basilica San Marco
by littlesam1

Most visitors to Venice begin their visit in the Piazza San Marco. Pictured here is the Basilica San Marco. This has to be one of the most elaborate Basilica's I have every seen. Every inch from the outside and through the inside is decorated. Its not the most beautiful church I have seen but it is the most ornate. From the replicas of the Bronze Horses on the roof, to the gold laid interior mosaics its almost impossible to take it all in on one viewing.

Also note the pidgeon wing in the upper right hand corner of the picture. I think every picture I took in the Piazza during the day light hours has a pidgen dive bombing somewhere in the background.
