Joy and wonder were the emotions when I knew that I’d spent the new year, 2012, in the beautiful city of the Doges, with two friends.
For the occasion, kelp calle illuminated every field and Venice, making it even more evocative atmosphere of the channels in the evening.
The night piazza San Marco was crowded (70,000 people), offering tourists come from all over Italy and the rest of the world one live show, a kiss themed at the stroke of midnight for couples, and a splendid show of fireworks over the lagoon having launched several balloons.
The spumantino is also acceptable to abstainers result! Exit from San Marco to inns and hotels was pretty challenging, but remain a little longer for the lanes in the holiday was really nice.
Some warnings for the first of January: all civic museums remain closed, then for the tourists, after a nice breakfast at a cafe in San Marco historical (rather expensive), we have to walk or go to the Islands, Murano and Burano. Need at least an hour to arrive and the vaporettos are less frequent, so it is well organized.
A new year for the rest excellent, better if you stops the evening in the delicious local jazz, and if you go to the discovery of areas less banter by tourists but nonetheless fascinating as the University area, the Jewish ghetto, and historic buildings like the Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa.
Good 2012 everyone!
