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:
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) Istituto Santa Maria della Pietà Foresteria Valdese Sestiere Castello, 5170, Venezia VE, Italia San Servolo Domus Ciliota Patronato Salesiano Leone XIII Cultural Center Don Orione Artigianelli http://www.donorione-­‐ Cost estimations:
train/ flight 100 – 300 Euros
vaporetto tickets in Venice 50 – 70 Euros
accomodation: 100 – 300 Euros (for 6 nights)
Biennale entrance: 20 Euros
last evening dinner: 20 Euro
290 – 710 Euros – this very much depends how you travel and your requirements of
We would suggest to book everything as soon as possible !
