At about 11:00 p.m. they finished their drinks when Battery Boy took Video Girl's hand and walked her to the centre of the piazza where they danced a final tango as the music filled the square outside Caffe Florian before returning to the hotel to prepare for another travel day tomorrow. Battery Boy thought the last tango was in Paris but he was wrong. I suppose that is why the French have always loved their beurre.

This is another good small hotel. Although our room was on the small size it still had all the required facilities and the hotel has a good location near St Mark's Square.
