Venice Biennale

Prices from: £249 (Based on 4 Days, 3 Nights)

With the next Venice Art Biennale taking place on May - November 2017, this makes the 57th International Art Exhibition, to be a perfect Art & Design school trip to expose your artistic students modern art.


The 57th International Art Exhibition will take place on The Giardini, the traditional location of the event. The site is set in a beautiful garden area, it accommodates approximately 30 permanent pavilion structures that are built by participating countries in order to demonstrate the best artwork each country has to offer.

The Arsenale is the second Location; recently renovated estate holds a high place in Venetian history as it was once the centre of Venice's naval power. Now however it provides a gorgeous backdrop for the Bienalle, and it is becoming more valuable to the event. It hosts a wide range of various exhibitions including live performances and unique art presentations.

Adaptable Travel has been arranging study trips to this International Art Exhibition for many years, enabling students, and adults, the opportunity to experience one of the biggest and most diverse art events in the world that covers a wide range of subjects including Theatre, Dance, Architecture, Cinema, and Art, making it an ideal destination for your next Art & Design school trip. Founded since 1895, the Venice Biennale is described as the ‘Olympics of Art’, the Venice Biennale combines Cinema, Art, Dance and Music in 2014, with the Art Biennale taking place May - November 2017.

We had a great time in Venice as it was the carnival. We managed to gret some great photographs for myself and for the students projects.

A fantastic destination for a student group as it is so unique. There is so much to see and do during the day but not so much in the evenings. The transport was no frills but perfectly adequate. Transport within the destination was by regular boat bus and very easy to negotiate. Accommodation was very clean, funky designs and space for groups to chill. The location of the Generator is great, within a quiet island but only 5 mins journey to the mainland. The walking tour of the city was fabulous, we visited parts we probably couldn't find on our own and the content was very interesting. We also took the opportunity to visit the islands of Murano & Burano, an absolute must. The production of glassware on Murano is interesting and the colourful buildings of Burano such a delight. The organisation of the trip was very smooth thanks to Adaptable, definitely value for money and hugely educational. Thanks!
