Even if you are not into contemporary art, just go to see this absolutely beautiful villa with a wonderful terrace on the Grand Canal, where you can sit in the sunshine and soak up the wonderful view for as long as you like. Then have a wander around the beautiful area where this collection is located. It is much quieter... More

Go with a guide to get the life story of Peggy. It has the most unusual Alexander Calder piece. Beautiful in many ways.

This was by far the highlight of my trip and I would recommend it to anyone who fancies a break from the rest of Venice for a while. The art collection is made up of such a wonderful range that even the reluctant friends I had dragged with me were in love with the gallery by the end. There is... More

Small & quaint but fantastic quality art in the museum. The Pollock's stand out, and I recommend to view them up close to see the different material that he used. Great views of the canal from the outside. Make this part of your Venetian trip.

A destination on everyone's list, even those not interested in contemporary art or in Peggy Guggenheim's life. A testimony to this is that the temporary exhibition by Tancredi was deserted - despite his being Peggy Guggenheim's longtime protege and fantastic artist,

Peggy Guggenheim's Venetian home is a gorgeous setting for an impressive art collection. The pieces are modern and a refreshing change from the mostly religious art found all over Italy.

Just go there. The collection is huge, the building amazing. Watch out for the bronze horse and rider.

Peggy Guggenheim's collection might be neglected by some, since they have to see many amazing sights at probably just few days, but they would really miss a unique, very personal museum by an extrordinary woman. Centrally placed and with lovely river view for the doubtfull.

Stopped here on our way somewhere else and ended up spending half a day here. The interns working on site are brilliant. Able to answer any questions and also share stories of Peggy's life. Beautiful pieces of work by Kandinsky and Picasso amongst others. Lots of comfy sofas to chill and look at amazing art. Photos around the museum to... More

I imagine this is heaving in summer - but we had the place pretty much to ourselves out of season so we're able to soak in what is truly an extraordinary collection. Of particular excitement are the abstract impressionists - Motherwell, still, Pollock etc - and surrealists. Definitely still as exciting as ever .

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighbourhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
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 in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
