Venice’s magic never ceases… it just modulates, gently, from hour to hour. Just before dawn, the city is tinged with blue and the promise of another beautiful day. By early morning, the gondolieri gather and the tourists and pigeons invade Piazza San Marco. After dark, the bands begin to play old classics on the glittering plaza and the labyrinth canals recapture the mystery and romance of centuries past.
