This holiday, Stella Artois wanted to "Give Beautifully". Stars is an installation where they give you the gift of the stars as well as a few nice refreshments. ;)
As you reach for the stars, they come down to you. So far, they only have done New York City and Buenos Aires is up next.

This was the view from my hotel Violino D'Oro, it was absolutely breathtaking! In the mornings and afternoons, we were serenaded by the Gondoliers next door.
Our hotel was right next to the Piazza San Marco, in the designer shopping area and there were a few restaurants in walking distance. We did some sightseeing then ate dinner at Vino Vino. The food was good and moderately priced and the staff was extremely friendly.
The next day we took the ferries over to explore Burano and Murano islands. Burano is popular for it's colorful beauty and lace while Murano is famous for glass blowing.
All in all Venice is a beautiful city and I would definitely give it another run. There wasn't much to see so I found that a short 3-day trip was more than enough to see everything and be satisfied.
This is a recipe I found a few years ago on Pinterest. I follow all steps but usually tweak it into my own, (i.e.: frosting type, sugar amounts). I'll do everyone the favor and convert the measurements. Enjoy. :)
