Venice and Sicily on top of the world

Hotel CiprianiThe 2010 Conde’ Nast Traveller Readers’ Awards were presented at a scintillating evening on Wednesday 1st September 2010 at the Royal Institution of Great Britain in Albemarle Street.  It was a good night for Italy with Venice and Sicily in particular picking up “Favourite Overseas City” and runner up prize for “Favourite Island” respectively.

Great success also for the Italian hotel industry as the Hotel Spendido in Portofino picked up the award for “Favourite Overseas Leisure Hotel in Europe, Asia Minor and Russian Federation”, followed in second place by the Hotel Cipriani in Venice.

    Venice must be getting something right it was voted top for Condé Nast and also made the Trip Adviser Top 10 destinations in Europe as posted more recently.

  2. Paul Johnson says:

    It would seem Italy as a whole is getting things right. I notice they dominate that Tripadvisor list, with 4 of the top 10 destinations all being in Italy.

    i recently went back to venice after a break of 15 years and loved it. Never had a bad meal the food was fab and it was great to wander down all the tiny streets, i am now planning my return and i won’t be leaving it 15 years this time!

    I Venice but don’t think I’d go back there are a lot of other places in Italy I prefer. I guess it is very unique though and has that going for it.
