“In the romantic ambiance of Lido di Venezia, the Grande Albergo Ausonia & Hungaria awaits with its extraordinary multi-colored mosaic facade, the largest in the continent, created and realized by the famous Bassanese sculptor, Luigi Fabris in 1913. A marvelous example of Liberty style, the hotel has its original furnishings created more than a century ago by the Milan-based designer, Eugenio Quarti, which were exhibited at the prestigious Salone dell’Arte in Paris.”

Fantastic. I bet you feel like you are back in the 1920s when you stay there!
