  • Not many tourists make it down as far as here.Great place for a leisurely stroll.Still plenty to see and do, just not at a frenetic pace. 
  • Two zaujínavé lounges-Giardini and Arsenale, Venice-Biennale is held in párnom year's biennial of architecture and fine arts in the biennial nepárnom. Giardini is a large park, a recreational zone, where the national pavilions of different countries from around the world. Arsenal are former boat docks, also a very interesting place. Both campuses are close to each other.

  • The Arsenale in itself is very a very interesting structure an can only be visited during biennale. The quality of the architectural biennale exhibition pieces varies, but as always there are some really stand out contributions to see.
  • Really amazing exhibits revolving around this year's theme of architecture. Thought provoking ideas on how to solutions for infrastructure challenges in different parts of the world. One of the most worthwhile experiences that I had during my stay in Venezia.
  • This year's Biennale has a particularity with the opening and main pavilions, a true sense of understanding of social architecture, it is a great space with really interesting projects to make you think for a while. Consider a day for each place, if you have to choose between Giardini and Arsenale, I would go for Giardini and visit first the main central pavilion.
  • I really enjoyed the exposition! The buildings and spaces you get to visit are also very interesting!
  • Multicultural place with perfect atmosphere. I really like it
