For those who will have a little time to indulge in artistic interest, we suggest some of the must see museums in Venice:

I Musei Civici, Gestiti dal Comune (Ca' Rezzonico, Palazzo Ducale, Museo Correr);
Palazzo Grassi
Gallerie dell'Accademia
Peggy Guggenheim collection

It can be very wet in Venice in November, with a risk of flooding (acqua alta). Participants are therefore advised to bring some wet weather boots and clothing.
