On our last night in Venice we went to see Vivaldi's Four Seasons, performed in a small concert hall. The musicians were amazing. When the concert was finished we had to walk through St Marc's Square which had decided to flood while we were in the concert. So we rolled up our pants and took off our shoes and walked through the flooded Square. This morning started with an early breakfast and boat ...

It is literally breathtaking. I expected it to be beautiful but I do not have the words to describe the stunning areas that we saw. I am not sure my photos do justice to the scenery.
