The publication of some selected contents of “Detourism: Venice newsletter” continues (see previous post: “Detourism for the Up and Down the Bridges“). This is the newsletter prepared by the Tourism Office of the Town of Venice which is sent free of charge to hundreds of subscribers every week, providing valuable food for thought and insights on the history, art and culture of Venice. On our website, in several episodes, we will only present some samples of the newsletter, but the invitation addressed to all the friends of the Up and Down the Bridges is to fill in the online form proposed by the Town of Venice to receive it directly in their email box every week.
Special thanks to the Councillor for Tourism for having enthusiastically welcomed this new important collaboration between TGS Eurogroup and the Tourism Office of the Town of Venice and for giving us the precious opportunity to publish on the pages of this blog some extracts from this newsletter, both in Italian and in English.
Today we discover more about the gardens of Venice! Enjoy the reading!

Venice is a surprisingly green city: its historic centre has over five hundred gardens, including public parks and historic gardens belonging to ancient palaces and convents.

The public gardens area is about 120 thousand square metres, divided into six gardens across the city: the Royal Gardens, the Napoleonic Gardens, (partly occupied by the Biennale Gardens and the Greenhouse, the Sant’Elena Pinewood, the Papadopoli Gardens, the Savorgnan Gardens and the Villa Groggia Park.

Some of these parks offer benches you can sit on and eat your lunch, as well as drinking fountains and public toilets. Take a look at the map of urban green spaces open to the public in Venice. Even the centre of Mestre has green spots you can explore on foot or by bicycle, such as Giardini delle Mura (City Walls Gardens), Villa Querini Park and Villa Franchin Park.

In June, the Civic Museums of Venice will gradually reopen, and you will be able to visit the historic gardens belonging to some of them, such as the garden at Ca’ Rezzonico, Museum of 18th-century Venice, and the Natural History Museum’s garden. To know when each museum will be opening, follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Until May 31th, Carlo Scarpa’s garden, at the Querini Stampalia, will open only on weekends (from 11 am to 5 pm). Admission is free for all visitors. Entrance is granted based on availability, due to a maximum number of visitors allowed in the museum. On June 2nd, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection’s garden open its doors to the public. Entrance will be on a timed quota basis from 10 am to 6 pm, and must be booked in advance. From June 3rd, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection will be open on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am to 6 pm.
