BLOW-OUT

VENICE’S Ho­tel Cipri­ani sits at the east­ern tip of its own is­land, Isola della Gi­udecca, and dur­ing the an­nual Venice film fes­ti­val, you could just find Ge­orge Clooney sip­ping belli­nis at the bar. The place to dine at this his­toric pile is Cip’s Club on a canal­side pa­tio. Baby shrimps from Lake Garda are dressed with olive oil and pars­ley; a rock­fish risotto comes with a wild fen­nel ragout. Sip wine from Mu­rano glass gob­lets as fer­ries chug past. Cip’s Club is open to non-guests but you need to book; the chic ho­tel launch will col­lect you at the sign­posted land­ing stage near Pi­azza San Marco. More: hotel­cipri­ani.com.
