Random Venice Pictures

View of St. Mark's from the bell tower.

The famous 'Bridge of Sighs' leading from the Doge's Palace to the Doge's Prison.

The street leading to our apartment. The courtyard is behind the gate at the end.

Chocolate mountain.

The winged lion is the symbol of Venice.  Pretty cool symbol if you ask me.

Little meat pigs, presumably pig meat.  You know you want one.

Somehow the vegetables at the markets in Italy always look amazing.  Maybe because they typically only eat things in season?

Venice's famous fish market.

This was a cool 24 hour clock face.

One of the wells in our courtyard.  Check out the intricate carving.

Shop where oar holders for gondolas are made.  Apparently the guy quit being an astronomer to do this.  I think that's kind of awesome.

Hmmm...symbolism maybe?
