Cloister in San Georgio Maggiore open on weekends. Now part of the Cini Foundation.Mark Quinn retrospective exhibition Venice Biennale
All go now the 2013 Venice Art Biennale is in full swing.

Follow the season at Piccola Perla. Quiet escape through February and March.
Spring awakening from Easter Monday through to early April. Short stays mid May, June and July. Catch the last of the Art Biennale from mid October to 25 November. Dates on website calendar.
Valentine and Carnival. Pure romance. Escape the drab winter as Venice explodes with fireworks, parties and colour. Celebrate the final weekend followed by Valentines. Its a lovely experience just to wander the calles, see the marvellous costumes and the children having such fun. You may want to dress up, hide behind a mask, attend a Ball, or take advantage of Venice full of life in this remarkable time in winter. Piccola Perla a quiet escape , yet only minutes from the Riva and San Marco.
Imagine walking across the temporary bridge to the Church of the Salute on 21 Nov ? An important event for Venetians in the winter months. Rather like the Redentore in July this is a celebration of the ending of the plague. Venice in winter holds a magical quality. Both quiet and slightly mysterious. I feel you can claim to know this city if you have walked the calles in the mist
We had a fantastic time, arriving in spectacular style on the Orient Express in a thunder storm. The apartment was lovely and so convenient for everything. We loved popping to the bakers every morning to collect our panini alla noci . Picola Perla was everything we wished for and you had thought of everything we could possibly need. We would definitely like to return in the future and will definitely recommend it to our family and friends,

Autumn in Venice: sunsets at their most rosy. Catch the last few weeks of the Biennale at Piccola Perla from 27 October to 24 November. Only minutes away from the Arsenale & Gardini. Fantastic work hosted by Great Britain. Another success.Enjoy the restored winter garden by the Giardini.
_The latest testimonial from a guest (who booked over 2 years ago) on their way home from Piccola Perla:
"Quick reply from the train!- thank you SO much for everything. It's the little touches that make such a difference: the proper crockery and Venetian cookery book and ample supplies of dishcloths etc! (and of course the prosecco...)
I too hope we have the chance to come back. Thank you so much for lending us your space!"
Only 4 weeks to go. Imagine the fun of Carnival in dreary February. *The final weekend available from Friday 17th*. Crushed velvets and laughter, masks and music. Piccola Perla an ideal base to step into the mystery of Venice.
