If you need an idea for a last minute romantic getaway for you and your sweetie over Valentines Day, this package just came across my desk and if money was no object (ha!) I’d be making resers as we speak…

Venice is surely the world’s most romantic destination, and Starwood’s The Hotel Gritti Palace is one of my very favorite palaces — so it’s all good.
