Synopsis

Museum City Series: Venice - Queen of the Adriatic
View Venice through the eyes of writers, artists, poets, and architects in the 30-minute travel documentary, Venice: Queen of the Adriatic. So, sit back, relax, and take a picturesque gondola ride to Venice's famed Basilica which was built in 829 to honor St. Mark, the patron saint of the city. Take in the spectacular Piazza San Marco--the square that has been called "the most beautiful room in Europe"--and marvel at the Palace of the Doges, the Sansovino Library, the Campanile, and dozens of museums, public buildings, and churches. Once a dominant center of commerce and trade, Venice is now a jewel by the sea--a tourist city that attracts more than 250,000 visitors a year. Its culture, history, and beauty come alive in this Museum City Video. ~ Kathleen Wildasin, Rovi
