In Venice visiting a graveyard is not as easy as elsewhere. The vaporetto to Murano has a stop at the island completely covered by this graveyard. Luckily we decided to get off the boat. What an amazing sight. Regardless of the effort, plenty of people apparently pride themselves to keep the family graves filled with flowers. This cemetary certainly ranks amongs the top I have visited.

A wise man, can't remember who, once said:'The way people treat the death, says a lot about the degree of civilization'. I can only agree.
