Trip to Venice

Venice - the city between the sea and heaven, full of mysticism and torn between reality, imagination and dreams, with its numerous narrow streets, bridges and canals - is an excellent starting point for an unforgettable day. Mediterranean Summer School participants will take a nice one-day trip, full of interesting stories about the most unusual and licentious city in the world, which will be created by the experienced guides.

 

 

The Square of St. Mark is still the most visited square in the world. Millions of foreign and domestic visitors have for decades stopped right in the heart of Venice, which the Venetians call the center of its small water park. A camera is necessary: the palace (or buildings) which were built in different periods combine different architectural styles.

 

 

The town center boasts with a basilica of St. Mark with the Byzantine domes: on the one hand, the bell tower, piazetta in front of the Doge's Palace and St. Mark's Bay, on the other hand, the clock tower and piazetta dei Leoncin, which is named after the red marble lions. The northern part of the square is limited by the Procuratie Vecchia, where there were once offices of the administration of the Venetian Republic and is located in the southern part of the former administrative building of Procuratie Nuove. On the ground floor of the two there are shops and caffee bars where Byron and Dickens liked to sit . All this and more we will see in the city on stilts ...
