Travelers: Venice

You're in Venice, in Piazza San Marco and the Piazzetta di San Marco. Look at the two columns topped by stature of the city's patron saints that guard the water's edge. If you believe the local superstitions, you won't walk between those two columns. This used to be a spot where public executions were held. It's still considered bad luck to walk between them.
