Wouldn’t it be magical to spend your honeymoon in one of the most romantic cities in the world – Venice! This city begs for you to get lost with your loved one in the charming European streets and canals. One elite hotel that CountDown Events would highly recommend for the design lovers would be the Palazzina G. Hotel that sits by the Grand Canal.

The Palazzina G. Boutique Hotel is sultry! A work of art by creator, designer & architect: Philippe Starck. This hotel is hidden behind a 16th-century façade. Luxury is evident with a champagne bar, giant chess set & terrace-toting suites. With 22 fashionable rooms and suits, this avant-garde hotel offers exclusive 5-star services & beauty.
