From the courtyard you can move on in many different directions. We chose the nearest gate and there we saw a small, contemporary part of the cemetery with ordinary graves - nothing really special. We have read somewhere that San Michele is supposed to be the resting place for the Venetians only for 10 years. After that time the ashes are moved to some other cemeteries. You know - the space, or rather lack of it. But the truth is that we found quite a lot of contemporary graves that were more than ten years old.

Venice curiosities - part two

Well, it's high time to take care of Venice curiosities for the second time;-)

What was omnipresent in Venice was renovation. The cranes standing here and there but most of all the canvas! No, no, there was not any art exhibition on this occasion, although... Well, to get this straight, I mean the canvas they put on the buildings that are being renovated. Nothing strange in that? I'm afraid you are wrong. What serves as the covering has the part of the renovated building painted (or rather photographed) on itself. It looks beautiful. Well, don't take my word for it, just check it yourself.

Here you have St. Mark's clock tower.
