It is a nice experience in a very nice location. It is expensive, 25€/person and be prepared to walk a lot! Some pavilions are really great! Professionals may need more than one day to explore.

Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob

Ideally, you need two days. One for the event in the Giardini and one for the event in the Arsenale. It is normally possible to fit in the other small places dotted about Venice (if you don't mind walking). If you are going... More
