ITEM #: C7569 Venice Cityscape Ornament by Kurt Adler
Material: Glass & Glitter - Comes Boxed
A cityscape ornament showing Venice, Italy in all its glory! Venice, the capital of northern Italy's Veneto region, is built on 100 small islands in a lagoon in the Adriatic Sea. Venice has no roads but instead just has canals, which is why there are so many gondolas! The grand canal is lined with Gothic palaces and Renaissance influenced architecture. Piazza San Marco is the central square that contains the Campanile Bell Tower, which offers views of Venice's red roofs, and St. Mark's Basilica which is tiled with numerous Byzantine mosaics. The city is known for its art, science, politics and architecture. Hang this ornament on your tree to keep those fond memories of Venice fresh in your mind.
