The Berlin-based Giordano is the cofounder and co-owner of Culture Trip, Germany’s leading luxury travel agency. With her team of historians, architects, and specialist guides, she has access to private art collections, design studios, and houses, and can arrange introductions to personalities from the country’s diplomatic, business, culinary, and cultural circles.
New favorite: The 140-room Zoo Hotel in Berlin, overhauled by U.S. design firm Powerstrip Studio. “The interior of the 19th-century building evokes a theater set, with soaring ceilings and exposed-brick walls,” Giordano says. On weekends, there’s also a DJ at the hip Grace Bar.
