“Venice’s newest landmark is a modern classic that goes beyond the classical, located as it is in the splendidly restored 19th-century Molino Stucky, formerly a flourmill and granary. The Molino Stucky is perfectly situated on the Giudecca, the gondola shaped group of eight interconnected islands minutes away from Piazza San Marco and Venice’s major attractions. The hotel gazes proudly out over the Giudecca Canal and an unforgettable city skyline”
All very true, but it seems very remote from the essential Venice that people want to see. Giudecca is also home to a womens’ prison. Don’t confuse the fortress like hotel with the prison.
