After taking some few shots at the Piazza de San Marco, our tour director took us to Gran Caffee Chioggia for drinks and nibbles (pulutan) and to witness a musical show. The cafe is located across the right wing of the Museo di Palazzo Ducale (Doge's Palace/Museum). We had actually passed the cafe on our way to St. Mark's Square. The musical show was performed by a talented violinist Joseph Miotti and his equally amazing musicians. I think they called themselves as the "The Italian Style Quartet" It was entertaining and we enjoyed those tricks to adding humour to the show.
They played a familiar song, "My heart will go on". It wasn't our fave song but when it played beautifully added color to the romantic evening. Other entertaining songs they played were: "Isn't She Lovely" by Steve Wonder, "A Whiter Shade of Pale", "The Godfather Theme song". While the performance was ongoing, I've noticed a lot of tourists came to stop by, could not resist but witness these quartet music in Venice.
Many people said that Venice is a romantic place and I am not really sure why. I came to think of it. Was it the place, or the mood? Maybe because we're just surrounded by wonderful people? Hmm, or the occasion? Perhaps! But later I reckoned I just felt special, important and loved. I just couldn't believe where able to visit this place and celebrate the joyous occasion with hubby -- our anniversary.
