I know Venice pretty well having visited many times (and my wife worked in Venice for 3 years). But, for some reason, only this year did we get around to vising the Peggy Guggenheim Collection.

Makes a change from the Renaissance art and culture all around, this oasis of modernity devised by Peggy Guggenheim who lived in this palace on the Grand Canal. If you like 20th Century Art you won't be disappointed!

This museum has some of the most important pieces of modern art. Almost every important modern artist is represented in the collection and the buildings and grounds create a very peaceful atmosphere.

Many bizarre but fascinating items - and young American interns, some more knowledgeable than others eager to discourse on them.

I loved this gallery for its scale, which was small and domestic (being in PG's home) and her very specific taste in painting and sculpture. It gives a great contrast to all the other incredible art in the city.

Lovely location, light and airy, friendly staff with excellent audio commentary. Collection with a very personal feel for Peggy Guggenheim reflecting some of the very best of 20th century art and sculpture. Excellent cafe and shop. Didn't dislike anything!

We're not really into ultra-Modern Art, and some of the exhibits left us scratching our heads, but it was interesting nonetheless. Well worth a visit.
