Reminiscing about a trip to Venice in 2010. It was evident in the magnificent architecture that this was once one of the most powerful republics and the center of commerce and art. I can imagine those couture clad courtesans wearing their towering chopines strolling around the piazzas. The place was packed with tourists, but Venice and its Lagoon, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was breathtaking, splendid and as cliche as it sounds .....romantic.
