Venice’s St. Mark’s Square Inundated Again with Flooding and Ice

I love Venice but I am glad I am not there now as the city and visitors have to deal once again with flooding and this time with ice too.

Intrepid pedestrians navigate ice floes in Venice’s St. Mark’s Square – PhotoBlog.

The city is expecting hundreds of thousands of tourists this weekend for the grand celebration of Carnevale so hopefully by then everything will be back to normal.out these photos and video of what things looks like at St Mark’s Square and the Grand Canal.

  1. Yikes. What a mess. Hope it drains fast.

  2. Wow, disturbing and amazing. A beautiful place, but what a mess. In addition to my own memories of Venice, I always think of Marlena De Blasi’s “A Thousand Days in Venice” when looking at images of this romantic city.

I'd love to hear your thoughts so please leave a comment.
