Night is the best time to enjoy the magical of Venice: the crowd of tourists are gone or are resting, tired, after long walks. The reflection of light off the surface of the canals and the way light shines from the windows give a different dimension, more intimate. The sounds change: the plashing of water, the echo of the footfalls and of the voices in the empty spaces, show the city’s true dimension. Enjoy your night far from the places bound by tradition and the beaten track. Do you want to find out what a museum is like at night?
