TRAVEL POSSIBILITIES
Booking Flight / train – be sure to book that you arrive on time (before 15:00 on
Saturday 1st of October – as the seminar starts at 17:00 at the Palazzo Trevisan –
this is obligatory !):
By plane:
Check for good flights and appropriate flight times (eg. EasyJet / Geneva etc) – you
might have to fly Friday evening for example to arrive in time !
By train:
Geneva departure 7:39– Venice arrival 14:40
Fribourg departure 7:34 – Venice arrival 14:40
Bern departure 8:06 – arrival Venice 14:40
PLEASE check the trains/times yourself as well – times could always !
You can book a group ticket if you are at least 5 persons.
Travel to/around Venice during the week:
By vaporettos (the waterboats from Venice public transportation):
To come by train is very appropriate as the main station is directly on the main
island - the city of Venice – at the airport you have to pay for a separate ticket.
Rolling Venice Card
If you are under 29 years old it is clever to get the Rolling Venice Card (Euro 6,-) and
2 x 3-day-travel card (2 x Euro 22) – that is probably the best deal if you need it the
whole week. – Depends of course of where your accomodation is and how you
travel. You definitely need a day card on Monday (3.10.16).
You can combine it also with a return ticket from the airport if you should come by
plane. Order online or bye directly in Venice – Infos:

ACCOMODATION POSSIBILITIES
When you look for accomodation be sure to be not too far from Palazzo Trevisan or
the other Biennale Area - otherwise you need too much time for going from one
place to another. On the main island you can do a lot by foot – you only need
comfortable shoes.
If you are a group of students who want to travel and stay together it is always
worth to check out the costs of renting a flat in Venice – as it is not more expensive
than the youth hostels sometimes:

From our experience from the seminars before also the following could be a choice – hostels with rooms for 2-­‐6 people or more: Generator Hostel Venice – on the island Giudecca (you definitely need vaporetto ticket) http://www.hostelvenice.org Istituto Santa Maria della Pietà http://www.pietavenezia.org/it/istituto/casa_per_ferie/ Foresteria Valdese Sestiere Castello, 5170, Venezia VE, Italia http://www.foresteriavenezia.it/ San Servolo http://www.sanservolo.provincia.venezia.it/conferences/default.aspx?pkey=tosleep Domus Ciliota http://www.ciliota.it/it/ Patronato Salesiano Leone XIII http://www.salesianivenezia.it/alloggi.html Cultural Center Don Orione Artigianelli http://www.donorione-­‐venezia.it/it/index.html Cost estimations:
train/ flight 100 – 300 Euros
vaporetto tickets in Venice 50 – 70 Euros

Biennale entrance: 20 Euros
