Venice.

Returning to Venice in April gave me a chance to revisit Ca Rezzonica, which houses a wonderful art collection , the work of Longhi is special to me, he is the equivalent of a venetian Charles Dickens, his paintings are full of gentle humour, social comment and observation. G B Tiepolo’s ceiling fresco’s found there are another pleasure. Hotel Ca Sagredo has examples of both on their walls and ceiling , amazing.
