The Classic Belvedere Sunrise is quite theatrical where different elements of nature come together in a choreographed routine to create an artistic masterpiece. With the chiming bell tower in the background, the blanket of darkness is slowly lifted and the audience are greeted with early morning mist adding drama to this open air arena. The blowing wind adds a touch of freshness to the scene while meticulously shaping the low lying fog, playing peek-a-boo with everyone eager to soak in the lovely view.
Just when it feels we have seen a magical display,lo and behold, the sun decides to sneak up from behind the mountains to paint the sky above the cozy town of San Quirico. The climax begins with a tug of war and eventually the sun forces the fog to recede in the crevices of the tuscan valley allowing Belvedere to rule the center stage. Slowly the crowd disperses but the farmhouse stands tall to mesmerize the next set of visitors the following morning and the story goes on.
As the day breaks, the quaint island "Burano" comes to life with the sudden gush of tourists coming from Venice mainland to admire its beauty. It mesmerises and captivates visitors all day long with its unique characteristic of colored houses on both side of the canal, which flows through it. In the evening, as the crowd starts to fizzle out, this graceful beauty starts to come back to its original serenity and tranquility. If you are a true traveler, take a step back and observe this metamorphosis of the island. With the fading sun, all forms of life either leave or get locked indoors and the silence is broken only by the bobbing of boats. To be there and to witness this transformation is truly blissful and an experience to cherish for life!
