“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 .”

“The Gallerie dell'Accademia is a museum gallery of pre-19th-century art in Venice, northern Italy. It is housed in the Scuola della Carità on the south bank of the Grand Canal, within the sestiere of Dorsoduro. It was originally the gallery of the Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia, the art academy of Venice, from which it became independent in 1879, and for which the Ponte dell'Accademia and the Accademia boat landing station for the vaporetto water bus are named. The two institutions remained in the same building until 2004, when the art school moved to the Ospedale degli Incurabili.”

“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.”
