A night in Venice


Last week, travelling through Northern Italy, we stopped overnight in Venice!  We've been here just 3 months ago but, as you imagine, it's always exciting ...


This time we stayed at the Metropole hotel, which houses the renowned restaurant Met, but unfortunately it was a real disappointment.  
The common spaces are very attractive but the rooms are a disaster! Neglected and smelly (and for the crazy price of this city it's unacceptable!).  


 Finally we drank our cocktails at the famous Harry's bar, surrounded by an old atmosphere; socialized with the bartender, wearing the splendid white jacket, we enjoyed our aperitif sitting at the bar, flipping old photos of Hemingway and Harry in the '30!  Fantastic!

  2. Ottima vista dalla terrazza!! Vi ha ripagati sicuramente della spesa e della delusione in hotel.. Devo riprendere anch'io l'abitudine di fare piccole gite per l'Italia, la sto trascurando!
    Un bacione
