Why? walk to art Venice is designed to encourage artistic and cultural development through discovery and exploration of La Biennale di Venezia – International Art Exhibition, in Italy.
How? walk to art Venice explores ideas and issues, allowing you to be re-stimulated and re-energised visually. The Biennale is considered the most important and prestigious event on the international contemporary arts calendar, and the oldest and largest established biennale in the world.
Australia has been consistently represented in the Venice Biennale for more than 3 decades, through the financial support and management of the Australia Council for the Arts.
What? In this special tour, we cover Giardini della Biennale, Arsenale, pavilions and various locations hidden in opulent Venetian buildings.

Testimonials "We so loved it and our group was fabulous. Doing an analysis I figured the artwork/installations ranged from dismal to creative and intelligent. Stopping at the wine bars in the late afternoon to have prosecco and chichetti was also such fun. Thank you!" (2011)
"Thank you once again for all the hard work you put into your La Biennale di Venezia tour. It was fabulous made, even more so by the considerable knowledge you bring about art, installations, the challenges artists face in getting ready for such a significant event, as well as your knowledge of getting around Venice and the places to go for wonderful food. Love the small group size also. It's my second time with you to Venice and I loved it as much as when I was on your 2013 tour." (2015)
