Although one of the very best things to do in Venice this year involves the Venice Art Biennale, the biennal exhibition showcasing some of the most intriguing works of contemporary art from all around the world, there are, of course, gondola rides down the Grand Canal, extraordinary beaches, world-class museums and top-notch restaurant cicchetti to add to your bucket list as well.
Remember, especially, that the city calls for getting lost, which is the only way you'll stumble upon a quiet canal dressed up in hanging gardens suspended from Venetian terraces. A few more tips for you: the city is sinking as the seas are rising so, especially during the colder months, pack your boots in preparation for high water and floods; the best way to get around, unless you are visiting neighbouring islands, is by foot; and it’s always the proper time for a glass (or three) of prosecco.
Ready, set, explore.
