  1. Venice is the most romantic city in the world. We have just returned from our unforgettable honeymoon.We stayed at the stunning Gritti Palace. It offers an ultimate luxury with beautiful antique furnishing, immaculate service and breathtaking views of Venice.To add more to the romance you must try the gondola ride with a singing gondolier- amazing!Dont forget to sip a cappuccino at St. Mark’s Square, visit Dodge’s Palace and Saint Mark’s Basilica,stroll through the pathways and walk over the many bridges. These are moments from a fairytale which one day you would like to share with your kids!!!
