  • Wonderful experience. Not sure it was a regular offering or a special event, we had the most delicious buffet lunch. Awesome food in a spectaculor setting.  more »

  • Admittedly, I have not been inside the Venice Institute of Science & Art as it had been taken over for a G8 summit, however, throwing caution to the wind, I thoroughly enjoyed the grounds, sneaking past a partially roped off area that led into the garden. This was spotted whilst on one of the canal buses and had been worth further investigation as I had spent the day fruitlessly trying to find somewhere to propose to my now wife. The setting couldn't have been more perfect and the outcome was a pleasing one.
  • The back of this building, at the side of the canal, is way more beautiful than the front
