We went in the evening for desserts and drinks- when St Marks is uncrowded- after the kids finished playing with the pigeons (and washed their hands), we had some amazingly delicious desserts in a beautifully ornately decorated historically significant cafe while listening to live orchestral...More

WE HAD AN AMAZING EVENING AT CAFE FLORIAN..... the band playing just set the mood that NEEDS to be an Experience that all travellers NEED.... this is the Perfect ending for a perfect night in VENICE.... after having a Great meal at the MASCARON, we dropped in with people we just met at the Mascaron and they suggested a drink or cafe at a Terrific place that we'd remember forever.... AND THEY WERE RIGHT.... That Experience was PRICELESS..... if you can't be THERE....in TIME and think of the Great history that was and you are a part of that NOW....in this TIME.... then you're missing the MAGIC of the MOMENT.... that is what a vacation and travel should be for your SOUL...... I have this one particular song that they played, could you maybe send a list so that I can BE sitting there once again.... MAY 24th 2017..... A PLACE OUT OF the pages of a HISTORY BOOK.
