Given the importance of Istanbul to the story it really is not surprising that the other great power in the mediterrannean middle ages – Venice should be visited during this tale.

“There is no place on earth more exuberant than Venice”

This picture of a sunset over Venice is a haunting reminder of years and centuries gone by.

Piazza San Marco - The Historian

“Venice stole some remarkable things from Byzantium” Here referring to the plunder from the infamous 4th crusade.”I looked out from under the awning…where the coppery horses seemed to be dragging the weight of the dripping leaden domes behind them”
