It's a very whimsical destination and today's post is taking a peek into the unique society parties that took place in early June during the opening of the Venice Biennale, the largest contemporary art exhibition in the world.
Above is a photo of a cocktail party in the ballroom of the Palazzo Pisani Moretta, a palace built in the 15th Century for the Pisani family. Are you having a little bit of venue-jealousy right now?
Above, guests mingle before being seated for the Venetian Heritage Gala dinner.
Below is a dinner party at the STUNNING Palazzo Albirizzi, another palace that has been in the hands of its original owners, the Albrizzi family, for over 500 years. If you're looking for a vacation rental, an exclusive apartment here is just $12,000 a week...
And last, we round out the night at Hotel Cipriani where Russian artist Stella Kesaev hosted a party to celebrate her Moscow-based contemporary art foundation. Czech out the bovine-inspired upholstery!
Incidentally, Hotel Cipriani is an Orient-Express Hotel just like our very own Charleston Place.
I hope this travel series was fun, we have to go again sometime! Ciao!
