My Venice: Francesca Bortolotto Possati

Francesca Bortolotto Possati is the owner and CEO of the Bauer Hotel group in Venice, including the luxurious Bauer Palazzo, a historic Gothic property on the city’s Grand Canal. Her grandfather Arnaldo Bennati, a Ligurian shipbuilder, bought the hotel in 1930 and it has remained in the family ever since. She shares her top tips for visitors to Venice with Global Blue.
