The Venice Biennale is one of the world’s great art exhibitions, along paar with Frieze and Art-Basel, offering a biannual art exhibition. The art exhibition runs from early June through early fall and includes an architecture and dance component as well as Venice Film Festival. Coinciding with other summertime art events like Art-Basel, the festival centers on the Giardini where a series of pavilions offer gallery-style exhibitions varying between sculpture, modern art and photography.


During the event, visitors should expect numerous parties and restaurant and hotels around the city attended by world glitterati and international luminaries.
