Venice is my favourite place in the world. If I had to choose one place to stay forever, Venice will be the chosen one. Its architecture, its history, its food and its undeniable charm made me fall in love with this city when I was a kid. Since then, I’ve tried to visit Venice at least once a year. The Venice I love, my Venice, is placed in the Castello area. The Venice I love is full of empty tiny streets to enjoy long walks, lively squares to savour a Spritz and a nice conversation, boats that sell the best fruit and nights that are as enigmatic as silent. But there is another Venice: the opulent, decadent, exclusive and even obscene. That Venice surrounds the Gran Canal, that Venice is epitomize by those palazzi where lavish parties have taken place during years. I’ve always been so curious about it, I won’t lie. And this hotel seems the best place to discover it.
Venice is my place. The place that makes me feel at home, although it’s not my real home. The place were I feel good, pretty and full of energy. The place that makes me want to cry tears of joy when I arrive and the place I wish I didn’t have to leave. The place that I daydream of, the place where I could spend the rest of my life, where I know I will be happy. Today I wanted to share with you some pictures of my Venice. The details hidden behind the tourists, the little squares where I spent my childhood holidays, the peace that just Venice can give, the mistery, the loneliness… but also the joy, the bridges that I’ve crossed so many times, running when I was a kid and walking really slowly the last time I was there with my grandfather. Venice is the best place in the world. It’s my best place in the world.
Beautiful Venice, even when we have to say goodbye.
Visiting Venice is always magic, but if the Mostra is on… wow, glamour dapertutto! First thing to do: capuccino, cornetto and Vogue Italia, of course!
