“If there is one place in the world people will want to come back to when they can travel again I honestly believe it will be Venice.” ―Mauro Tochi, Gondolier


Unlocking the sea gate, we slide into the lagoon of a hundred islands.

“…to slip beneath the surface and soar along the silent bottom of the sea agile and shining in water honeycombed with light.”

Ellen Meloy

While pigeons flock in the plaza, we slip into a palazzo’s bagno.

“Though there are some disagreeable things in Venice there is nothing so disagreeable as the visitors.”

Henry James

Steeped in sunken glory, submerged in lapsing liquidity, dreamily gleaming.

“I must be a mermaid, Rango. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living.”

Anais Nin

Like a submarine in a theme park, it is redolent of the gondola we wish we were in.

“Venice never quite seems real, but rather an ornate film set suspended on the water.”

Frida Giannini
