“Famous! It can take a entire day to go through the Biennale at arsenale and 2 days do see both Arsenale and Giardini. However, years after years, if you only have a day or a half day to dedicate to the biennale I recommend going to Arsenale rather than Giardini.”

Art Museum
““The Garden of the famous architect Carlo Scarpa in the Querini Stampalia Fondation in Venice” In the Castello district is located one of the most beautiful and interesting museums: the Querini Stampalia Fondation. In this museum - the only Venetian palace which survived the end of the Republic - you can admire one of the most beautiful gardens of Venice, designed by the famous architect Carlo Scarpa. The restoration by Carlo Scarpa was based on a combination of new and old features and his great skill in the use of materials. He mainly used water as a central decorative element, which in fact came from the canal that overlooks the building, and entered the building through bulkheads that run along the interior walls to reach a large tank layered with copper, concrete and mosaic and a small canal at the ends of which there are two labyrinths carved in alabaster and Istria stone. Water plays a major role in this garden: it keeps on flowing from one side to the other with a gentle murmur to help us enjoy a moment of meditation and suspension and not too loud to disturb an intimate, gentle conversation. Don't miss the garden and the connected palazzo's contemporary art exhibitions, extensive public library and elegant 18th-century rooms. Palazzo and garden visit is about €10, have a look to the website: querinistampalia.it ”

Island
““The most colorful island of the lagoon” If you visit Venice for more than one day, I highly suggest a visit to Burano, a lovely island in the Venetian Lagoon, about 40 minutes on a waterbus from Venice. The Burano Island is mostly famous for its brightly colored houses lined with the canals, which create a sort of urban rainbow. According to the legend, the island's fishermen were the first to color their houses, so they could see them while they were out fishing. True or not, today Burano boasts a unique cheery atmosphere: a sort of dreamland, with flower boxes sitting on the windowsills and gondolas passing along the canals… The island is also famous for its artisan lace production: in the many craft shops that dot the streets you will have the opportunity to admire the master artisans at work, and to buy lace products of the highest quality. Also, among the Burano’s attractions, there's the Lace Museum and a 15th century leaning tower, which is the bell tower of the San Martino church. The colorful island of Burano is the perfect place for a half-day excursion, to discover Venice’s craft tradition and breathe the peacefulness and prettiness of this fisherman’s town.”

Scenic Viewpoint
“From Zattere you can enjoy the view over the Giudecca Canal and the Giudecca Island. Compared to the narrow streets and spaces in Venice, this place is like a breath of fresh air with a wide horizon and stunning view both on sunny and rainy days. In Zattere you can try DA NICO’s “gianduiotto”, iced hazelnut ice-cream served with tons of artisanal whipped cream – high in calories, it's a perfect snack after a long walk across town.”

“Rialto , Erberia , San Giacometto square , here you find traditional and modern places . You may choose to have a glass of wine sitting at a table outside , enjoyng the view on the Canal Grande or standing in the square to make small talks . Others prefer to go at the next Campo Bella Vienna to eat Cicchetti (fingerfood) and dancing to the rhythm of the music of the nearby bar .”

Library
“A comparatively little known place, a good exemple of a Renaissance Venetian Scuola ('association, place of meeting'), with its original paintings and furniture still in site. This one has a gorgeous collection of primary works by Vittore Carpaccio, with the histories of St. George and Jerome. In the background of the religious stories, charming landscapes of Venice as it was some centuries ago, sparsely built and with wild vegetation. Fabulous! Un luogo relativamente poco conosciuto, è un bel esempio di scuola rinascimentale veneziana con dipinti e mobili originali ancora in loco. Vi si può ammirare una splendida collezione di opere primarie di Vittore Carpaccio. ”
