Sunrise at Piazza San Marco, Venice, Italy

Venice has a gorgeous waterfront. The location is absolutely magical because you can view the sunrise and sunset from the same place. Makes absolutely no sense, right? What happened to the sun rises in the east and sets in the west?

So, in the early morning, I headed out to Piazza San Marco. All the gondolas were parked along the water’s edge with the sun lighting up the sky behind San Giorgio Maggiore. This is why we hit the road early in the morning.

At the right time, the buildings around Piazza San Marco are still lit, as the day awakens.

Then the sun washes across the campanile with its lush, radiant rays. Ciao bella!
