Venezia

Queen of the Adriatic

Once did She hold the gorgeous east in fee; And was the safeguard of the west: the worth Of Venice did not fall below her birth, Venice, the eldest City of Liberty. William Wordsworth

"It is the city of mirrors, the city of mirages, at once solid and liquid, at once air and stone" E. Jong
