2017 is a truly exceptional year to visit Venice. From now until November the Biennale is taking place, a fabulous modern art event. There’s also the Damien Hirst exhibition playfully called ‘Treasures from the wreck of the Unexpected’ to be enjoyed at Palazzo Grassi and Punta Dogana. There’s a Hockney exhibition on too and of course the fabulous permanent 20th century art collection at the Guggenheim. All this in the most spectacular city, where stunning architecture, history and atmosphere combine to create the glory of La Serenissima. St Mark’s Square, Bell Tower, Rialto Bridge, Doge’s Palace and St Mark’s Basilica.

A LAST WORD OR TWO…
“Venice is an enchanting city. Palaces, bridges and canals link the numerous islands of Venice to each other. This is a city of boats, lapping water and polished paving stones. A city to walk, wander and dream. A city of romance. Why not join me, Janet Simmonds, tour guide and travel writer in the city that has inspired and influenced me for more than thirty years.”
