    You have to book a date and time slot to visit the rooftop terrace, don’t take a chance and turn up, you won’t get in. We booked in advance and was it worth it… absolutely! Considering it is free when everything else in Venice you pay for, it really is a breathtaking view of the city. Take as many photos/videos as you want in your 15 min slot and you will take home beautiful memories of that view. Oh and it is housed in a gorgeous department store which in itself is impressive with all the mood lighting. Highly recommend

    Just yards from the iconic Rialto Bridge, next to the Grand Canal, and on the shadow of the law courts, this is little taste of the genuine Venetian life, unspoiled by generations of tourists.

    There are stalls catering for visitors, and nearby you can find stalls selling reasonably upmarket tourist tat, but this is still the real deal. Even Venetians need to buy fresh food.

    Some of the fruit and vegetable stalls have a brilliant selection of produce. You can tell which are best, by the queue of locals with shopping bags at the ready. But even if you are not buying, it’s just a really satisfying sight!

    Even more remarkable is the next door fish market. What a visual feast. Authentic fishy smells. And hear the stall-holders shouting at one another in the Venetian dialect.

    But get here early: by lunchtime you may only have the seagulls for company.

    I have not been in the store. In fact, I live in North Carolina, US. My friend has been to Venice several times, and her husband got her a custom cameo of her mother. It is so beautiful! She gave me all the information to get a custom cameo of my Mother. I sent Marco a few pictures, and he went to work. It is so special!

    We’ve been coming to the architecture Biennale for a while, and decided to try the Art version this year. I can’t say we liked much (if any) of the art; we are not contemporary art fans, as a rule. But, the organization and representation is still impressive and comprehensive.

    Unlike the architect event, which mainly draws academics and architects, the art event also draws a LOT of mainstream tourists. Thus, the crowds are larger and the ability to move around more difficult. Since many of the Art events are also experiential, there is also a lot of standing around and trying make you way through crowds. So, I would recommend you go early and try to pre-plan at what points you will need to make breaks.

    Throngs at food lines are also not a lot of fun, so if you plan on eating at the biennale, eat at off times, or at the small cafes nearer the periphery of the main halls. Getting tickets in advance for the event was not necessary for us, as we only had one day to go. But if you plan on spending more time there, consider on of the multi-day package tickets, which can be purchased in advance.

    My wife and I ordered 2 watercolor art pieces for our house to remind us of our amazing trip to Venice this past winter. The vibrant colors and views of the city are extraordinary and capture the beauty of Venice exceptionally well. Monica shipped these paintings to our address in Mississippi which made things much easier for us in lieu of us having to pack them to transport back to the states ourselves. We are pleased with our purchase. Highly recommend

    Carlo Scarpa… although I saw this exhibition some years back , on St Georgia Island, it remains for me one of the most beautiful and memorable exhibitions I have ever been fortunate enough to view.
    The curator was indeed an artist .. such an eye for placement and balance… and the love of Scarpa’s glass obvious … it was nothing short of a gift.

    Rather small compared to other "Schools" in Venice, but worth the visit. Be aware though that wearing shorts may not be acceptable - we saw some people turned away precisely for that, but that may just have been the policy of the guardian-of-the-day. The paintings are quite impressive, and probably by now the restoration of one of the most famous paintings of that pictorial cycle has been completed - it was to take five months more when we visited in July 2022 - there was a copy hanging on the wall when we were there. We had a chance to speak briefly with the restorer, who was working in a side room - very talented young woman. Taking photos in general is a bit of a challenge in all of these churches and museums because of the reflection of light (both natural and artificial) on the oil-based paint, and this was certainly the case here, so the best is just to take it all in with your eyes - or focus your camera on small segments of the paintings.

    This is a gorgeous little gallery, not far from Santo Stefano square.
    You can easily spend an hour in the gallery admiring the quirky exhibits.

    We found this small shop by chance and went in because my son was enamored with a family of miniature glass pigeons displayed in the window. Moments after we purchased the treasured pigeons, the artisan began to make new ones! We stayed to watch for a short while and were enthralled with how effortlessly and skillfully he creates his wares. Truly a highlight of our short trip to Venice!
