My once-in-a-lifetime trip to Venice

Venice has always been on my “must-see” travel list, with its endless romantic towers and basilicas reflected in those famous canals.

Defined by its extraordinary location which is in the heart of a city and yet quite separate from it. the Cipriani is directly across from St Mark’s Square with its palaces, campanile, cathedral and thousands of visitors and yet there is a water’s breadth between them.
