  • I do not want to talk about the Biennale as an artistic event, but break a spear. In favor of refreshment points. Usually within events like this you will find bars a little improvised, with unlikely sandwiches at gourmet prices. Not so at the Biennale.

  • The most important architecture exhibition in the world every two years. The Venice Biennial is an exhibition that contains ambitious and creative ideas comes from all over the world. The exhibition contains two places: one in Arsenal and one in Giardini. It’s recommended to visit both to have a whole perspective of the exhibition.
  • Fantastic setting for the art and architecture biennale. Very beautifully restored old building that is a good backdrop for art work. good Services every year seems to be getting better and better more washrooms and more rest stops. Also they have a pretty good book shop there. there is a lot of exhibition space there and would recommend spending the better part of the day roaming the grounds.
