Last night we arrived at the Ruzzini Palace Hotel pretty late, due to a delay in our flight from New York and, after giving the porteur our luggage, we were so tired we couldn't even take a look around.
It's half past eight, the sunlight slightly filters from the window. I open my eyes, and for a moment I can't recognize where I am: clearly, this is not my room. Beside me, Sebastian is still sleeping so deeply that's such a pity to wake him up, but I can't wait to start our first day in Venice.

Pampering ourselves in the Suite
We chose to stay in the Royal Suite to pamper ourselves for an unforgettable week-end. I get out of bed, I open the window and the sight of Rio del Paradiso enlightened by the April sun overlwhelms m: I'm not used to this kind of sight, and it warms my heart up. Then I notice that the sight of the other window is different: you can see Campo Santa Maria Formosa in all its beauty, and I'm happy to have chosen the only room with both sights. I hear Sebastian saying something behind me, and I turn back to him.
Diving into the Venetian luxury of the past
The room is incredible, and it impressed us immediately last night, but enlighted by the natural light it's definitely different. It's the same sensation of being a XVIII century aristocratic who has just woken up in her own room, but with all the modern comforts. I look up to the ceiling, and my eyes have a spark of light noticing the fresco of Tiepolo (1696-1770): I've always loved Italian art, and staying in a real Venetian palace, where you can admire paintings made from the greatest Italian painters everywhere, it's a special emotion for me.
I make two coffees with the coffee maker in the room, and I drink it sitting on the bed, admiring a Lazzarini's painting on the wall.
“I'm happy to be here with you” says Sebastian, hugging me from behind. I get up and go to the bathroom to dress up for the breakfast, and I see with great pleasure that there's a bathtube: I hope to have time to bathe in the foam after a long day running from a museum to another.
In the room there's a dressing table with a big mirror, perfect to do my make up, and admiring myself in there made me feel like the main subject of a painting framed in a golden frame.
Behind me Sebastian shows up, that's been ready for a while: all he needs to be perfect is a white shirt. “Let's go” he whispers. I nod, taking a last look to our reflection on the mirror to impress it in my memories.
It's already nine a.m., and an intense week end exploring the city is waiting for us, but if our first wake up it's been like this, I have no doubt it will be an unforgettable experience.
