Venice Biennale with Grand Rapids Art Museum

  • Coming again in 2022
  • 7 days/6 nights at luxury or boutique hotels
  • Past trips in 2011, 2013, 2017, and 2019

Join Grand Rapids Art Museum director Dana Friis-Hansen, D*Lux Travel's Diana Dopson, and fellow art lovers for a 7-day ArtAdventure to Italy featuring an exclusive tour of the international contemporary art exhibition La Biennale di Venezia paired with insider access to a curated mix of architecture, landscape, and culinary experiences. Each time, we craft a new itinerary that combines beloved favorites with new places to explore so that those who have joined us before can come again. Stunning, art-related hotels, such as Gio Ponti's Parco dei Principi in Sorrento overlooking the Bay of Naples and Byblos Art Hotel in the rolling hills outside of Verona, serve as our bases. Along the way we meet local experts, enjoy wonderful dining experiences and boat rides, and give you lots of opportunities to explore on your own. Keep an eye here as we develop the trip and post updates.
