I love the view over the terracotta - it is a look that has remained largely unchanged for centuries

I always find it incredible that someone could have the thought, that for defence security, it would be a good idea to build a city entirely on water! If ever there was a thought "outside of the square" then this is it!

I adore the glove shops in Italy. Unlined, cashmere lined, fur lined, spots, lilac, pale pink - whatever you desire, the choices are here. I often fantasise about a "glove wardrobe" -  colour and style changed daily to match one's outfit!
Peak Hour Venetian style

View of water from the prisons in the roof space of the Doges Palace
Interior ceiling of Doges Palace
Magnificent glass wall lights - these would look a little out of place in most other  places - though perfect in our restaurant in Venice
Over the top and magnificent! Each individual piece is hand blown - a work of art
