I promised a separate post of the view from the top of the campanile (bell tower) on San Giorgio Maggiore. This is that post and yes, with my zoom you are entering Piazza San Marco which is not nearly as close as it looks in this picture.
But let’s start at the beginning….waiting for the elevator to take us to the top. It is glass and you can see the walls as you climb. I didn’t realize that I had the reflection of Max looking at the workings of the elevator until I got it on the computer.
I’m going to let most of the rest of the pictures speak for themselves as I don’t want to point out a landmark and have it be wrong.
Yes, that is a maze in the photo above. Marc and Iain tried to find the entrance but all the gates were locked.
We were there when one bell clanged…about 10:30. You do not want to be up there at the top of of the hour.
And this is where we are going today.
There are a lot more pictures from the top and they will be in the album that I will give you the link for at the end of my journey.
