I'm an enthusiastic contemporary art collector/admirer and have visited 2 other Guggenheim Gallery's so was wrapped to visit Peggy's original gallery and house. Loved the building, so light and airy, loved the courtyard with its trees and sculptures and loved the range of art. If you are keen on art this is a must!.

What an enriching experience! The collection is absolutely incredible. A real feast for the eyes. And, you can even have the privilege to look at the numerous boats on the Grand Canal by sitting on the gorgeous terrace situated at the back of the palace.

I yield to no one in my appreciation of Peggy Guggenheim's collection. Her support of Jackson Pollock and others was seminal in artwork in the 1900s. My beef -- and it makes it nigh impossible to appreciate the art -- is that venue is 1/4 the size the artwork artwork deserves. We were there on a typical summer sunday. We... More

Art was fantastic, but we could've done this in NYC. I don't really care for modern art, and was just told to check this place out by a friend. In retrospect, I wouldn't have gone because there was nothing here related to Venice. I would have much rather spent my time doing something specific to Venice. Don't buy tickets ahead... More

We enjoyed our visit to the museum, which cost €15 for me and €9 for my daughter, who is a student. It was great that all she had to do was show an email from her university because she didn't have her student card with her. I would advise not paying the extra for the audio guide unless you are...

Beautifully housed collection of fantastic art. Peggy knew what she was doing when she collected art. I don't think you can find a more inclusive contemporary collection anywhere else. Saw the newly conserved Jackson Pollack,Wow. It was covering a whole wall and was enormous. The painting was mesmerizing. Lovely garden and grounds.

We were in Venice for 5 nights. I probably would have missed this had I stayed shorter, and I'm so glad I got to see it. So much! Pollock, Picasso, Chagall, Dali, Miro, many many more. Spoiled Peggy! Just kidding.

Visited the Guggenheim Collection, last year, while visiting Venice on a cruise, It made a welcome change from all the hustle and bustle, of Venice, and just a few minutes walk from Academia bridge, and close to art Gallery's and relaxing cafes were you could enjoy a coffee, or beer or a glass of wine. Often overlooked by visitors,

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.
