““The so called Napoleonic Gardens just few steps from home” The Venice Giardini or Giardini della Biennale is an area of parkland in the historic city of Venice which hosts the Venice Biennale Art Festival, a major part of the city's cultural Biennale. The gardens were created by Napoleon Bonaparte (by emperor's decree in 1812) who drained an area of marshland in order to create a public garden on the banks of the Bacino di San Marco which is a narrow stretch of water dividing the gardens from St. Mark's Square and the Doge's Palace. The gardens contain a flourishing vegetation and are organized largely around a central avenue from where minors trails depart. Within the Gardens there are many monuments, most of which are placed in the area adjacent to St Mark's basin: namely, the monuments to Giuseppe Garibaldi, the patriot Pier Luigi Penzo, the mayor Riccardo Selvatico that promoted the Biennale, Richard Wagner, the great composer who died at Ca' Vendramin Calergi and the poet Giosuè Carducci. Pretty borders, leafy pathways and a dense canopy of trees make this an ideal escape in summer, and busts of famous figures such as Wagner and Verdi crop up among the bushes to add a historic touch. Walk east along the seafront from here and over a bridge and you'll also come to the Parco della Rimembranza, a strip of pine woodland created to honour the fallen of the Second World War.”

“Rialto , Erberia , San Giacometto square , here you find traditional and modern places . You may choose to have a glass of wine sitting at a table outside , enjoyng the view on the Canal Grande or standing in the square to make small talks . Others prefer to go at the next Campo Bella Vienna to eat Cicchetti (fingerfood) and dancing to the rhythm of the music of the nearby bar .”
