Venice Biennale 2013 With Kids
December 9th, 2013
To celebrate a birthday and see what the art world’s up to, we visited Venice – which is quite beautiful in October! (Okay, so a bit late posting this. But better late than never!)
We rented the third floor of the wonderful Palazzo Albrizzi in San Polo, close to the Vaporetto Station San Silvestro. If you go to Venice, you must take a watertaxi from the airport – you will never forget your first terribly decadent arrival in this wonderful Italian city. During our stay, we discovered the lagune and, of course, went to the Biennale. The entire city offers art in every form – from exhibitions at the Biennale pavilions, in palaces, museums and gardens! The kids enjoyed it more than I expected. Perhaps because the variety of creative works inspired them and helped them see how enriching it is to think differently and bring things to life that open other people’s minds. Yes, tourists, tourists and even more tourists everywhere but not at night! We enjoyed a sundowner on our roof terrace, had a great dinner party with the children, which was served at the Palazzo Albrizzi and when it got quite late, we took our portable musicplayer and a few bottles of fine Prosecco and went to St Mark’s Square. At night, there was no one! Can you imagine how it feels dancing with your best friends in this amazing historical setting all alone???
With love from Venice,
