A wide piazza stretches down to the water. There is nightly entertainment here, and I saw a few take-out windows so there will be food and drink as well.
Look up. See the skinny pink sliver of a building? See the terrace up top with the dark-colored table and chairs? If I ever stay at this hotel, then that is the room I want. That there is a primo view of whatever is happening in the piazza.
A dark, vaguely romantic and winding staircase leads to the lobby – since I have a boo-boo foot today. I will have to look for an elevator.
The buildings that line the piazza are equipped with long, somewhat meandering porticos, with occasional mysterious stranger taking up residence in random alcoves. Can you spot the shoes? 😉
