Death in Venice!! Hotel Des Bains
After watching the film Death in Venice a couple of times, I was curious to check out the hotel where the film was set on Lido. I'd visited Venice a few times, but hadn't ventured to Lido, until my visit at Christmas 2009.
I was quite disappointed to find that the hotel- Des Bains was boarded up, and the beach in front of it was in the process of being tidied up.
As I passed by the hotel, I saw a man leaving the hotel in his car, so I'm not sure if the hotel is still being cared for. It was probably even more melancholy than the film!!
