Seeing the sights
By Jonathan W.
Today, we traveled around Venice, going to the Rialto Bridge, Ca’ Rezzonico, and the Salute.
Rialto bridge was renovated a few years ago, and is absolutely stunning.
Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute, commonly known as La Salute, was dedicated to Our Lady of Health after a devastating outbreak of the plague. Venetians embark on a pilgrimage to this church yearly. It is an impressive piece of architecture, featuring a huge dome from which a chandelier hangs, columns, and many altars with paintings by famous painters such as Titian and Tintoretto.
It was a long day of walking and our feet were hurting, but the sights were worth it.
