March 21st – Day 8

My favourite part about today was taking the amazing and breathtaking gondola ride.

Aujourd’hui j’ai vraiment appréciée notre visite a la Basilique de Santa-Maria della Salute. Ce bâtiment a été construit il y a 950 ans. Le sol décorée de multiples mosaïques et fait à partir de marbre est époustouflant! Mon retour a la piazza San Marco m’a rappelé des souvenirs de ma premiere visite à Venise.
