Just back from an incredible whirlwind tour of Venice with the wonderful Rubelli team. Such an incredible city, drenched in history, art, architecture, fine wine and real mystery. Travelling up the Gran Canal one cannot begin to wonder about what those walls have seen through the passage of time. Real highlights included the Peggy Guggenheim Museum, Palazzo Rubelli to source fabrics, Hotel Gritti for style and food inspiration, and breakfast on the terrace at the Hotel Monaco where you watch the wonderful world of Venice float by. A top tip is also to try and find the wonderful Scala Contarini del Bovolo – a hidden staircase that once belonged to a now non existent palace.
