Palazzo Barbarigo in Venice
Give in to dark Venetian romance at this 16th century palace on the Grand Canal. Arrive by gondola and exclaim over the theatrical interiors (high ceilings, parquet floors, hushed velvet). Every dramatic detail gets the blood pumping.
The rooms are large
and decadent - a curious mix of modern boudoir glamour and deco chic - and the
vibe is warm and welcoming. Order a hearty glass of red and
clink glasses with your love in Barbarigo's slick cocktail bar.
