This was expensive and not worth the money. There was some art on the walls. No particularly noteworthy. The grounds were nice. I’d skip this one.

The collection is not big but there are many different styles so there will be something that appeals to each visitor. We walked from the Rialto Bridge to the site which took around 15-20 minutes (assume you will get lost at least once in the...More

If you enjoy early to later modern art you will want to visit this museum. Take the Vaporetto to the Accademia stop. It's a five minute walk amd there are many good trattorias and ristorantes close by.

Great little palazzo gallery of modern art. Closed Tuesday. Try to avoid the middle of the day when it can be overwhelmed by cruise trippers

This modern art gallery both interesting and informative. It is an interesting collection of modern art with thought-provoking works of Surrealism and abstract expressionism. There is also the odd work that make you wonder how on earth it counts as ‘art’. Minimal queue to buy...More

The collection is small, so it didn’t take long at all to see all the art work. Very neat to see Picasso’s “on the beach” collection and see some of Salvador Dali, Piet Mondrian, and other famous painters work.

Peggy Guggenheim has really made something extaordinary with the collection at her former Pallazzo. There is something for everyone, do not miss it.

A comprehensive survey of works from Cubism through the latter part of the century in a delightful setting on the Grand Canal. If you’re an art lover, this ought to be on your itinerary. The cafe, however, is mediocre at best and rather expensive. Cost...More

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
