One of the biggest attractions when visiting Venice is St. Mark’s Cathedral nestled inside of the square. The full body of St. Mark, as in the Gospel writer Mark, are buried here so it is a very prominent pilgrimage site in the Catholic community. The church is amazing but that’s not what this post is about. On rare occasion when the tide is high, the square of St. Mark, floods and we were lucky enough to be there during one of the night floodings. This is very early in the flood, but at it’s peak there is almost a foot of water in some parts. It’s definitely something I recommend waiting for if you are visiting Venice.
