This beautiful hotel, The Danieli, was my sanctuary for the first leg of a European adventure.
It was an ideal home base for exploring the City of Love, one filled with mystery and excitement around every corner. Exploring on foot, by gondola, speed boat and water bus. It's all part of what makes this an extraordinary place to visit.
There are 409 picturesque bridges spanning 150 canals, enabling easy access to the 117 tiny islands upon which this city remains afloat.
Here, within Venice, and in my hotel, dozens of movies have been filmed. Among them, The Tourist, featured Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp.
Is Venice on your bucket list?
