Style on the Adriatic

Venice is an awe-inspiring, mystical city steeped in beauty and fantasy. Surrounded by water, made up of canals, bridges and churches, and where two of my absolute favorite artists’’ Canaletto and Monet have immortalized the town in oil paint.

The Doge’s Palace is built in Venetian Gothic style and is one of the landmarks of the city and was home of the Doge of Venice. The canals are the ultimate in Venetian street style, and there is nothing like walking to discover local trattoria’s and la panetteria’s {bakeries}.

Travel stylishly,

Venetian Style

This year’s Venice Biennale artist Lorenzo Quinn created a sculpture of two hands arising from the city’s famous Grand Canal called Support, as a harrowing reminder of the rising sea levels caused by climate change. Support will be on display until November 26th at the Ca’ Sagredo Hotel, Campo Santo Sofia.

After a day of sightseeing there is nothing like checking into a quaint spot for cocktail hour, sipping on a deliciously cold martini’s at Ristorante La Caravella on Calle Larga, near Piazza San Marco, and has the decor reminiscent of a ship {which is so Venetian}. Next, it’s off to Trattoria Alla Madonna for a dinner of risotto, lobsters, and red wine…. è delizioso.
