Underground and underwater in Venice's flooded crypt

Posted

Workers are assessing damage inside the Basilica's crypt where sarcophagi are almost submerged by sea water after a tide peaked at 187 cm (6ft 2ins), just short of the record 194 cm set in 1966. It is the sixth time that the historic Saint Mark's Basilica has been flooded in 1,200 years.
