This was a must see romantic photo of a couple kissing in St. Mark’s Square during the flooding in Venice, Italy.

Venice Flooded: Tourists, Locals Make Way Through Venice As Heavy Rain Pounds Italy (PHOTOS) – The Huffington Post, November 12, 2012 http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/12/venice-floods-photos_n_2115886.html#slide=1643753

“VENICE, Italy, Nov 12 (Reuters) – Nearly three quarters of Venice was flooded on Monday and tourists swam in St Mark’s Square as a wave of bad weather swept through northern and central Italy, forcing the evacuation of 200 people from their homes in Tuscany. Shops, homes and historic palaces filled with water in Venice and authorities said 70 percent of the lagoon city was flooded. High water in Venice reached 149 cm (5ft), the sixth highest level since records began in 1872, forcing residents to wade through waist-deep water. Tourists in swimming costumes sat at cafe tables under the water.”
