Venice art tours

in conjunction with G·E·T Educational Tours (licence number 30137) – Venice art tours since 2011

Next tour: 31 October to 5 November 2024

walk-to-art Venice takes you to the most important and prestigious event on the international arts calendar, the oldest and the largest established biennale in the world – La Biennale di Venezia.

This boutique tour is hosted by Bernadette Alibrando, an experienced visual arts professional whose cultural heritage is Italian/Sicilian. She loves sharing her "hidden" local finds and favorite cicchetti bars with her groups.

Tours to Venice take place biannually. You will join a small group (no more than 8 participants; adults only) and be led through the mystical labyrinth of Venice.

In this special walking tour, we will take you to the Giardini, Arsenale, off site pavilions and satellite exhibitions in Venice and surrounding islands.

Participants receive a box of postcards revealing the meeting place and instructions for each day of the tour. The group meets in the afternoons to discover contemporary art in opulent Venetian buildings, before stopping for a glass of Prosecco (or two). There is ample time in the mornings to rest, shop and take in the many charms of this enchanting city.

  • "Thank you so much for your walking tour of the Biennale and exploring Venice. 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!"
