I can't see the video
Since I know it's Venice, I'm thinking a year or two at least.
The video has images of Venice, particularly the Grand Canal, also many of Florence, the Duomo, the Belvedere. Also David. I've spent time in both....Venice is magic at night, a maze of streets barely wide enough for two people, the glacial-blue water. Firenze (Florence) is also, at the right time. the various palazzo's. Seeing the sunset while sitting in a sidewalk café, watching people. Wish I were back there.
Beautiful... i shall listen on the river, chasing salmon while at the helm of Ol Ugly...
Aw bummer. I can't see it either. I like your description, though. It's an intriguing mysterious place to me. And sort of like the Grateful Dead in that I always wanted to see them and worried that I wouldn't see them before the band broke up or someone died and then, sure enough..now my only choice is tribute bands or recordings. I'll probably stick to recordings. Same thing with East Street Band. See Venice Now people. At least that's what I hear.
The rising sea level will make it a far different place. When I was there once there was water a foot deep on Piazza San Marco, and a elevated wood walkway set up.
Nice, It has been some years since our last visit to Italy
My daughter and I drove it a couple times, from Bad Kissingen to Venice, it took 10 hours. Actually a lovely drive, esp. through Austria and the first section in Italy, through the alps.
On the list of places I'd still like to get to.
I'm sure you will. If you go to Venice I recommend staying on Lido Island, there are some great B&B's....it's a 10 minute water taxi ride across to Venice.
Cassidy's "Vide Cor Meum" is truly beautiful, as are the scenes in the video.
It is lovely, even for someone who is not an Opera fan.
You, sir, are more cultured than I. I just started trying to get into classical music, and my favorite piece so far is the New World Symphony. I'm a disgrace. Thanks for your comment on my blog. It can feel like a lot to get that first post off the ground.
You're fine. At your age I thought Lawrence Welk's stage band was classical music.
