The 57th edition of the Venice Biennale, VIVA ARTE VIVA, is off to a powerful start. At the fair, you’ll find copies of Whitewaller Venice—out now to help guide you through the busy art fair and the bustling Italian city. Below, we’re sharing tips on where to go for dinner, drinks, and art inspiration from Cody Choi and Lee Wan—the artists representing the Republic of Korea.
WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
Harry’s Bar, a Venetian landmark. I stop by Harry’s when I can for a dry martini and grappa. From drinks and food to atmosphere and company, Harry’s Bar is quite the charm. Rossopomodoro was the first restaurant I went to in Venice. Sit outside for pizza and prawn linguini.
WHERE TO SEE ART
Of course, the Arsenale and Giardini. Punta della Dogana’s exhibitions are great and the building itself is a piece of art. The view of the canal from Punta della Dogana’s second floor is breathtaking.
WHERE TO RELAX AND HAVE FUN
The square in front of Hotel Ala is nice to sit around for coffee or beer.
Be sure to pick up a copy of Whitewaller Venice, out now.
