Depart the pier for a short 30-minute panoramic tour of the city to arrive at the art center. Enjoy your time at “Les Bassins de Lumières” in Bordeaux, a new digital art center located in what used to be one of France's biggest bunkers during WWII, used by Germans to house U-boats. The monumental space, which stretches over 14,500 square meters (about 156,000 square feet), will be dedicated to the great Master of Art History, as well as contemporary art.

Visits will be conducted on gangways above the water and along the quays of the enormous basins. The exhibition ‘Venice, La Serenissima – by Artistic Director Gianfranco Iannuzzi’ will take you on a journey of discovery of the artistic and architectural treasures of the city of Venice.
