Always regrettable to leave Venice, but one must remember you’re only feeling that wistful sadness because you’ve had the good fortune to enjoy the wonderment that is La Serenissima. It’s been great to have Leah from Leah Travels experience Venice with us, and we’re looking forward to what she writes about her time there with us and our good friends at the Hotel Giorgione. She got a chance to see Venice off the beaten path, to taste cicchetti at side street winebars, to eat the best seafood meals on the planet at restaurants most tourists miss and most big-bus tour operations haven’t even heard of, and see the REAL Venice as it should be experienced–a time capsule of a bygone era that you can see, touch, taste, and indulge in with your whole being.
We hope to see her again soon, and hope to share the magic with you.
One of the best parts of staying at Hotel Giorgione, our “home in Venice” is the warm hospitality of the quiet corner of Cannaregio where it’s found; this short video shows that Venice isn’t just the hustle-bustle crowded experience many folks complain about. If you know where you’re going, you’ll see the Venice that Venetians themselves experience: a post-work nip of prosecco, a quiet calle, and some fantastic cicchetti prepared with fresh local ingredients.
Love this quick video (check out the little wine bar on the left…imagine having a nightcap there after a lovely meal in Venice) our recent clients sent us of Doug walking them back to the Giorgione after dinner and an evening stroll through Cannaregio. It’s only a brief snippet, but you can get a feel for the warmth of the place and the artistry of the marble in the lobby. Even with a cell camera video, you feel the romance and mystery in the Venetian evening.
It really makes us feel “at home” to be regulars there, and our clients universally fall in love the with hotel and look forward to coming back again soon. Our home in Venice!
