  • Off the typical tourist beaten path, the Arsenale is really interesting to visit and get a taste of the Venetian's spectacular naval history. You can't go in and there's not anything specific to see b...  read more »
  • The arsenal of Venice is only close to St. Mark's square and is easy to find. Already from a distance, you can see the two columns that show the entrance to the arsenal. Here is located the former dockyard and the naval base of the former Republic. Today, the area for visitors is not accessible, this should change but in the next few years. But only the exterior and the two beautiful pillars are worth a visit. The place has a mystical silence and you notice this military site for Venice immediately always still is of great importance. Very much recommended, an absolute must.

  • This was the heart of Venetian warship building in the 17th century. Still administered by the Navy, it is a shadow of its former self. Looks good at night. 
  • Great place for inspiration and taking pictures. The expo explores lots of important topics for architecture and society.
  • We had an unlucky day. It was very windy and raining. Many people had the same idea getting there at the same time. So we had to wait in a long queue. After 20 minutes we arrived at the inner courtyard where we had to take a ticket. Our ticket number was 598. When we looked at the display we could see the number 187. It was unpleasent to wait 90 minutes till we could finally buy our entrance card at the cash desk. I hope the service team will find a new concept for the customer journey. The exhibition was very interesting. I love the big hall – it's one of the best places to show modern experimental art. Unfortunately we couldn't see everything, because we lost 2 hours before to get in :-(
  • impressive! Take at least two days to see all! Must see if you are into Architecture or design
  • Second part of the architecture Biennale and still a spacious, very intriguing place. Great place to learn, discover architecture from around the world.
  • Great experience
