Ever since my first time here in 1992 I have visited San Marco at first light. From dawn until about 8 am it is at its best I think. There is a lovely glimpse of local life, and it has become the time that the square does most of its work as a photo location.
Another advantage of that time is that if you walk home at around 8.30 you see the kids going to school, which is another of my favourite sights.
As well as the wanna-be influencers in the square we saw brides. The brides were more varied. This one seemed quite nice. Others seemed a bit self-centred and bossy. It’s easy to form superficial judgments.
I was more respectful about not intruding on the brides than I was with the influencers. After all, they were re-enacting a special day.
