The Venice Biennale is considered one of the most prestigious Contemporary Art events in the world. Every two years selected countries profile their contemporary artists and tens of thousands flock to Venice to be part of this exciting event.

Venice has been host to their own International Art Biennale since 1896. It started with only a few National Pavilions and has now expanded to include the Arsenale, the Giardini with extensive satellite exhibitions spread throughout the city.

Anne is a passionate advocate for contemporary art and her critical eye is balanced with an enthusiastic approach. She brings with her years of direct experience with Artists of all disciplines and personal connections in the international art world. Traveling on an Avec Pleasure tour will bring a customised program of art events tailored to the discerning art collector and enthusiast alike.

Whether it is your first visit to Venice or you’re returning for another taste, Anne and her Avec Pleasure team can ensure that you will have a unique Art experience designed to your individual tastes. If time allows, Avec Pleasure can also arrange ‘add on’ cultural trips out of Venice to the many nearby Island areas of interest. Note: This will incur additional costs.
