This was a great little gallery with some of our favourite artists: Kandinsky, Magritte, Miro, Pollock, Dali. During our visit they had two exhibitions on: Picasso's On the Beach and a Mystical Symbolism one.

Easy to find. Exhibits well laid out and varied. Need to look at their web site if anything special is available. Has a cafe which is reasonably priced.

This is an exquisit and extraordinary collection by the late Peggy Guggenheim. It is worth a trip. Currently there is a special exhibit with some Picasso paintings which alone is worth the visit. A Must See!

This collection is wonderful but the villa is even better.. What a wonderful life she must have had visiting Venice in this amazing home on the Grand Canal hosting all those fabulous people of that era.

Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
