I had to leave the hotel from another entrance and getting to the station that day was not fun. ha. A siren went off at 6:00 a.m. that morning to warn of the high tide.
See the platforms in the background. When I heard San Marco flooded, I pictured some puddles.
Not this. Wow. The tide comes in around 9ish and the flood waters leave a couple hours later.
The view out the front door of my hotel. The water was gushing over the canal walls.
Shot from one of the platforms. Some places didn't have them so I had to wade through. Good thing I had my leather boots treated with water-resistant spray. I did get wet but at least my shoes were not ruined. I looked like big dork with my pants hiked up.
