Venice's lovely cathedrals and churches are too numerous to count;
the most famous are Chiesa di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari which
is a huge Gothic church, and the Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute.
If you are interested in shopping then some of the most interesting
shops are located in two areas that lead off San Marco Square.
The history of venice is a very long and troubled one, and the
many monuments are a testimonial of this.
