What to see at the Cinema exhibition?
The 75th Venice International Film Festival can be reached by boat from Piazzale Roma and the railways, by lines 1/6/2 / 5.1 and 5.2. It is easy to reach Venice by car (to be parked inside one of the paid parking lots located in Mestre and the surrounding area) or by train, arriving at Venice S. Lucia station from which it will be possible take transport to reach the beach area, or to get to your accommodation and take a sightseeing tour of the city waiting for the projections and events connected to the exhibition.
Where to stay? What to eat during the International Film Festival?
If you are expecting to see at least one film at the 75th Venice Film Festival, you can easily stay in any of the hotels or B & Bs in the city. The Lido area where the exhibition takes place is in fact easily reachable thanks to public transport, and Venice itself is small enough to be easily explored on foot. We recommend the famous Rosa Salva Hotel and the hotel Nani Mocenigo Palace. If you want to taste the typical cuisine, we definitely recommend a nice dish of risi and bisi (rice and peas typical of Veneto) or a nice polenta and schie, the shrimp typical of the lagoon.
