Our last night in Venice, we were very tired (and freezing), and quite tempted to hightail it back to our hotel and a warm restaurant. But sanity prevailed and we took a vaporetto over to the tiny island of San Giorgio Maggiore and climbed to the top of tower at the charming church of the San Giorgio Maggiore. As we got out of the lift, the elevator man hurriedly pointed to San Marco's Plaza, smiling broadly and saying "bello, bello" like in a movie. And it was. There was no one up there but us, and for a few minutes we enjoyed a perfect combination of the best of man and nature. I hope this photo gives you a taste of what we experienced.
