7 More Reasons to Visit Venice

I’d like to share with you a few snapshots from my recent trip to Venice where I was invited to experience the new Epicurean School at the Gritti Palace Hotel.  I am always enchanted and overwhelmed by this ornate, indulgent city… I think Truman Capote described it best:

“Venice is like eating an entire box of chocolate liqueurs in one go”
– Truman Capote – Observer November 26, 1961

Every time I visit I find new reasons to return, here are a few more:

1. The Spritz

2. Night views like this one

This was taken from the rooftop terrace of the hotel

 3. Prosecco, everywhere you look

4. a water-taxi ride through the lagoon


5. Lunch at the ORTO vineyard on the San Erasmo island

6. Shopping at the Mercato di Rialto


7. A cooking class at the Gritti Epicurean School
