I invite you to Venice

11-4-2011 10-57-01 AM 

My loyal readers may remember that a year ago The Address magazine published an article on Milan written by me (HERE on Pages 106-113).

The Address magazine Milan 

This year I have written instead of Venice,
Venezia in Italian, one of my favorite cities in the world.

The Address is an exclusive online luxury property and lifestyle magazine, a division of W International, based in London UK, designed for an international audience. One of their regular features is an Insiders' Guide where invited contributors are giving their best tips to visitors to various destinations. No one can buy advertising space in the magazine, there is actually no advertising at all, inclusion is by invitation-only, so I was even more thrilled when they asked me again to write as an Insider, a year after I wrote about Milan,  choosing another city in the world and my heart went to splendid Venezia.

You can read online the whole current issue, N.10, HERE and you can find my article on Venice at pages from 186 to 195.

At page 193 a funny thing happened, my original image taken at Villa Pisani of Napoleon’s bed was badly cropped for layout reasons and as you can see from the image published

and my original image

Villa Pisani Stra 
Napoleon lost his “logo”!!!

It is always a pleasure to read The Address and day dreaming about fabulous houses and interesting destinations can inspire and excite our minds.  So many gorgeous houses around the world, so many extraordinary cities.

Let's dream on!

Brava Albarosa! Venezia is truly my favorite city as well...still a lady of mystery in so many ways.

I loved your Milano guide, and now I have Venezia. Can't wait to check out some spots next time I go home to Austria, as a trip to somewhere in Italy is always customary.

You certainly do make us dream on Albarosa. Wonderful article, I will take it along when I am in Venice next. Your best advice is to let yourself get lost. I have a wonderful drawing I bought years ago in an art gallery I cam across while roaming the streets of Venice.

You certainly deserve this. I will twit this.

Congratulations! I loved all of your recommendations. Receiving this information from someone as knowledgeable as you is such a gift. Your photography is beautiful as well!

Thanks for your wonderful article on Venezia in The Address, it refreshed my memory on this most fascinating City, a few places you mentioned were immediately recalled in my mind's eye as spots I have personally enjoyed.
