The Venice Biennale this year was wonderful! The theme "Freespace" was taken up by national and invited exhibits with vigor and beauty.
It was one of the gems of the summer in Venice, with the main exhibitions at the Giardini and Arsenale complimented by the...More
To really enjoy and appreciate you,ll need more than one day. We tried to see the architecture exhibition but it was a shame that at the end of the day we had to rush and skip things, going from the exceptionally beautiful Arsenale to the...More
Each odd year contemporary art projects occupy the Giardini and Arsenale and each even year you can admire architectural projects from late May to late November. Exhibition is spread in 30 pavilions, in Rope factory and all around Arsenale. Some young states try to find...More

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.

Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.

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 this year, also look at Damien Hirst's exhibition at the Punta della Dogana and the Palazzo Grassi (very good indeed) - so that's three days in all.
