Editorial Reviews

PIAZZA SAN MARCO The centre of the 'Serenissima', as the inhabitants of Venice lovingly call their city, is the Piazza San Marco, a square that Napoleon referred to as, "The Largest Drawing Room In The World." It is the city's most visited square and is surrounded by numerous buildings and arcades.The Bridge Of Sighs connects the Doges Palace with the city's former prison, the legendary lead chambers, in which Casanova was imprisoned and from where he made his spectacular escape. The magnificent Palazzo Ducale was the residence of the Doge. In 1341, the Palace Of Palaces was completed, the military symbol of Venetian power. Built as a palace chapel for Venice's Doge, the city's largest and most famous church, the Basilica Di San Marco is also known as the 'Golden Basilica' due to its outstanding opulence. Almost 2,500 granite and marble columns support the walls of this Byzantine-style building that contains five domes and halls. The main and side facades are decorated with sculptures that illustrate various tales of the city. Over 4,000 m\0x00 of golden mosaics form, after Sicily's Monreale Cathedral, the second largest mosaic surface in the world. Gothic marble statues and mosaics in Byzantine style decorate the facades and in between are wonderful Moorish elements that indicate the Venetians' attraction to foreign influences. This harmonic connection of styles created a building that is unique in occidental architecture. The Carnevale Di Venezia has a long tradition and the amazing masked spectacle that takes place around the Piazza San Marco attracts countless tourists from around the world. The perfect setting for the perfect carnival!

1.0 out of 5 stars Global Ripoff November 26, 2009
By PBH
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What a ripoff! I gave it one star only because I could not give it less. This video is all of 10 minutes long! Shame on me for failing to read the find print and EXPECTING Amazon to offer a bit longer video for $15. The photography was poor and the editing nonexistent. The narration was not even in synch with the video. The narrator was still talking about the previous scenes of carnavale as the credits rolled. Definitely save your money. And Amazon, you can and should do better for your customers. You should be ashamed of this offering.
