Today we’ve visited Venice. It’s not my first time in this city but today it has been snowing so it has been a special day. Piazza di San Marco is the central square of Venice and the place where the tourist find almost all the important buildings of the old city: the Palazzo Ducale, the Basilica di San Marco, the Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana,… Next to the Basilica, there is an interesting astronomical clock:

As you can see the Sun is located over Pisces (21st of February) and there is a typical 24 hour-clock around the astronomical clock.

What a wonderful day!
