Venice: Stuck On The Hilton Molino Stucky

Signore Giovanni Stucky built a molino (mill) on Giudecca Island in the Venetian Lagoon. What an entrepeneur!

Although he was a very successful businessman, he managed to get bumped off by an employee. Rumors continue that Stucky's attentions to the employee's wife had something to do with it.

In any event, Hilton turned it into a luxury hotel and it was a great place to stay, in particular with our suite upgrade, even though we had to time our trips to Venice proper in accord with the Hilton boat schedule.
