Your Venice Film Fest Game Plan

Different year, same story: Clooney. Knightley. You. No, not your annual white party—it’s the Venice Film Festival. So when you find yourself at Cipriani, drinking spritzes with a Gosling ex, consider these spots your next move. You’ll have to try to not run into James Franco.

Angelina and Johnny checked into this gilded, polished hotel—housed in three palazzi— in The Tourist. If you don’t have the drama-ridden love affair thing in you this time around, check in for the Grand Canal views and lobby drinks at Bar Dandolo. Watch out for paparazzi.
