Close your eyes - it's St. Mark's Square. You could add Salami or Mortadella if you would like.

Really good, even better with some extras! I added some onion, salami, and kalamata olives. Next time I'm going to try some Italian diced tomatoes in their juice to try and make the sandwhich a little less dry.
