• The modern side of Venice

    2010-11-04

    Although Venice is traditionally associated with canals, gondolas, and Renaissance art and architecture, the city has a modern side that not all visitors end up exploring.

    In terms of lodging, the Plazzina Grassi is perhaps the most modern experience in the city. The rooms feature floor-to-wall mirrors and minimalist furnishings of white and chrome, CNN reports. Visitors who expect to tire of the Baroque stylings of the city during their daytime walks can spend their nights in minimalist relaxation at the Plazzina Grassi.

    Although the city is known for its relatively quiet nightlife, the period of the year with arts and film festivals brings the party crowds to establishments like Piccolo Mondo, one of the city's most frequented clubs, according to the news source.

    As far as eating and drinking facilities go, Harry's Bar offers visitors the chance to get a drink in a bar that Ernest Hemingway and Charlie Chaplin once frequented. The restaurant Da Romano provides tourists with fresh, gourmet seafood.

    Shopping in Venice can be expensive, especially at the city's designer boutiques, like Prada and Furla, which showcase classic yet contemporary fashions.
