Venice. Venezia. The Bride of the Sea. Mary Shelley once wrote, “There is something so different in Venice from any other place in the world, that you leave at once all accustomed habits and everyday sights to enter an enchanted garden”.
Venice is indeed, as Mary Shelley quite rightly points out, an enchanted garden, albeit a garden with a Chelsea Flower Show crushing water feature. Nowhere comes close to Venice on pretty much any level: beauty, architecture, history, music, art, food (the food!!) wine…. top of the class, in every class, in any year, in any school, anywhere.
