Ostaria Boccadoro, Doge’s Palace, The Bauer Hotels: Alessandro Possati’s Venice

The 57th edition of the Venice Biennale, VIVA ARTE VIVA, has begun with much activity. 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 relaxation and inspiration from Alessandro Possati, the director of Zuecca Project Space.

WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
For the freshest seafood I head to Ostaria Boccadoro. You can taste the passion that Chef Luciano Orlandi puts into all his dishes, which never disappoint!

WHERE TO SEE ART
I am the director at Save Venice, which supported a major restoration of San Sebastiano, a project particularly close to my heart as the Venetian church is one of my favorite places to visit and reflect, while enjoying the incredibly skilled work of the artist Paolo Veronese. The best view in Venice can be enjoyed from the campanile of the San Giorgio Maggiore church, with views of the Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the Campanile di San Marco, and Santa Maria della Salute.

WHERE TO RELAX AND HAVE FUN
Bike along the beach of the Lido island, home of the annual Venice Film Festival. A temple for contemporary spirituality can be found at the state-of-the-art Spa, located in the Bauer Palladio Hotel, on picturesque island of Giudecca.
