Midday bell in Venice



The whole family spent a few days in Venice in early April, having travelled by train from London via Paris. On Wednesday 11 April we were at the top of the campanile in Piazza San Marco when the bell started to ring for noon -- and continued for a full two minutes. The bell is just outside the door of the lift to the belfry -- and a few centimetres above the visitors' heads.
