Maybe art lovers would enjoy it more, but for me the main attraction was the building with wonderful views of the canal, and the garden.

As you may have guessed by the title I am not nuts about modern art in many of the varied forms it may come in. The Guggenheim museum is an interesting stop. The outside area is lovely and some of the furniture inside is very striking. If you don't absolutely love -and I do mean LOVE- modern art, then I... More

Visited the collection which is in Peggy Guggenheim' old house. Lovely calm atmosphere, great collection including Her daughter's work. Inside and out the house is a treat. Worth the vaporetto ride.

Had to join for the visit on a foggy day. Did not expect much - but the time spent (90 min) was full of new impressions. A free of charge introduction to Peggy G of 15 min in the beginning helped to understand the history of the museum and the collection. And then the exhibited pictures and sculptures get a... More

What a location with a beautiful courtyard full of sculpture and a wonderful house stretching down to a terrace right on the grand canal. But not just a beautiful house. here she had Warhol, Rothko, Dali, Picasso, Moore and so many other world-changing artists to join her, whether adorning the walls, on the terrace or in the garden. It was... More

I'm not the most knowledgable person on the art scene, but I know what I like! Very relaxed atmosphere compared to many other galleries I have visited. Aside from works from Piet Mondrian, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Salvador Dali, (amongst many others) there is a beautiful sculpture garden and a nice patio over looking the Grand Canal. Some good exhibitions... More

During early February 2017 we tried to go here, as it sounded like a great place to view art, but it was closed for renovations, so you should check before you go just in case.

I was the first in line so the first one in, the folks behind me went to the additions first so I had Peggy's house to myself for about 10 minutes. Well not all to myself the docents, typically American girls in sophisticated black dresses. Great collection of Modern Art short but sweet visit for a dose of culture

Peggy bought well. If you like modern paintings you are unlikely to see a better collection. A change from the baroque of Venice.

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.
