Architectural Building · Historic Site
Stop by the entrance to the old town and appreciate Sea Gate, a monument to the city's rich history. Built in the 16th century under Venetian rule, the gate combines Renaissance and Baroque elements. Take notice of Venice's symbol, the winged lion of St. Mark, adorning the front, as well as the plaque that carries the date of the city's liberation from Axis powers. Take a break on a nearby bench and observe the crowds entering and leaving the old town.
