I've been blogging like a mad man on Venice. But I'm nearly done.
I'm just putting together a one day guide to the Arsenale exhibitions and beyond to go along side my guide to Giardini. That way, you've got two solid days worth of guided material and insight into what you're seeing.
Venice is, beyond its unmatched beauty and uniqueness, an event city. Biennales of dance, art and architecture sit alongside the renowned film festival to keep visitors enthralled.
In the spirit of this, you might want some more information about what it's like in Venice. I always think it's best to go to a local source, but given many of you might not read Italian, I've culled together three different blogs to give you a taste of the expat experience in Venice. These three writers will give you varying takes (all different to my own) on what life is like for them in the city of Canals.

Nan McElroy is a sommelier, so in addition to steering you around the canals, she'll have a few good tips on where to eat and drink should you not be up for a panino and a beer. Here.
Cat Bauer has lived in Venice for almost twenty years and has written for a number of publications. You might enjoy her insight here.
