Venice - Architecture Biennale - 2016

I'm considering Venice for the Archi Biennale in 2016, arriving in Venice 25th September, staying for a couple of weeks, leaving on October 12th.

Given that the Biennale runs from mid-May to mid-November, will it still be "alive" come end October. I'm concerned that some of the venues, other than the Giardini and Arsenale, might have closed shop by the time I arrive.

Does anyone have any light to shed on this?

I was there last year at the very beginning of October and it was still going strong. I only had mid morning til mid afternoon free on my last day in Venice so really only got a tiny taste -- could have spent two days easy.

Thanks Janis, and that sounds promising.

Re the pavilions at the Giardini -- allow at east most of a full day just for them. Because I wanted to get to the Arsenale I only had time for maybe 40% of then -- would have visited every one if I'd had the time.

I'm allowing a couple of days for each of the Giardini and the Arsenale. I'll buy a season pass. Last time, 2014, I realised that I'd need more than a day at each venue. Most frustrating, as the Biennale opened only a few days before we were to leave Venice.
