Stephanie Pritchard, managing director of Citalia.
What’s the attraction?
“There is much excitement in Italy next year around the reopening of one of the world’s most iconic hotels, the five-star Gritti Palace in Venice. The hotel has been closed for the past 15 months and is due to reopen in February 2013 after a meticulous hand-crafted restoration which has brought the historic palace back to its ancient grandeur. The hotel has sparked enormous interest from our customers since it was introduced to our new brochure.”
See for yourself
Citalia (0844 415 1956; citalia.com) has a three-night B&B break at the Hotel Gritti Palace from £529pp, including flights with easyJet from Gatwick, departing 4 March.
We say ...
To see the city at its best, and without the regular hordes, go before Easter or after September.
