The Peggy Giggenheim Collection is just SUPERB! It contains a substantial number of the best paintings of the best 'modern' artists of the 20th century. Every room held a treasure trove of first rate art - Picasso, Braque, Brancusi, Pollock and, of course, Max Ernst to name-drop just a few! How incredible it must have been to have lived amongst...

Interesting. This was a must see during our visit to Venice. Heard about the museum. The history of Ms. Guggenheim was quite impressive.

If you are an art lover you have to go in here. It was a fabulous collection which I would have been happy to own. Max Ernst, Joseph Cornell, Magritte to name but a few were all displayed in this building which is on the Grand Canal. The collection is split into two and has an interesting garden in between.

For any art lover a visit to this beautifully designed museum is a must. The garden with sculptures and places to sit down is great as well as the world class art collection even the Museum is rather small. We also liked the shop in the Museum where I bought the very interesting biography of Peggy Guggenheim as well as... More

Not being one for modern art but driven in by the rain I was pleasantly surprised. The staff were without exception friendly and helpful and I really enjoyed viewing the collection. We even got a great coffee in the cafe although it would I think be difficult to get a bad coffee in Venice. Definitely worth a visit.

If visiting Venice this is one place that you must visit. I am not an art aficionado by any means but still thoroughly enjoyed my time here. There are a great many works but some of the greats such as Picasso & Dali. When we visited we were fortunate enough to see the exibition of works by Jackson Pollock and... More

When visiting Venice we had planned to go to the Guggenheim. I am so glad we did. This is an eclectic art collection and it was quite simply a joy to be there. You can wander at your leisure, you can take your time and you are not ushered on or asked to move as some museums do. I was... More

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighborhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood 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 neighborhood 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. Neighbors exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
