VENICE: Film Festival - The Excelsior Hotel

LIDO: The terrace of the Excelsior Hotel.  The first edition of the International Venice Film Festival in 1932 was held on the terrace of the Hotel Excelsior at Lido of Venice, but it was not yet regarded as a competitive event. Today, at the 66th edition of the Film Festival, on the terrace of The Excelsior, special events were hosted for meetings with producers, artists, and for one-to-one interviews with directors and actors with the media.

LIDO: The terrace of the Excelsior Hotel – The food.  I had a Club Sandwich on the terrace of The Excelsior between movies and also people watched.  Unfortunately, in Italy Club Sandwiches are very hard to come by and when you can find them on a menu, they usually are not very good. This one I rated 5.5.
