Having a drink on Piazza San Marco is a dream for a lot of people. But it has a price. A steep one; The live music is well performed and a once-in-a-lifetime experience of that kind can be wonderful. But check the prices first. it my look like a samll espresso to you, but ...!

My wife had done her homework and I was along for the ride. I was grateful she took me to this art collection and one time home of Peggy Guggenheim. Modern art is hit or miss for me but this display caught my interest with a focus on Pollock. Her home was as interesting as the art and all set... More

I have recently retired from teaching high school art for 22 years. My husband and I took a vapperretto to the stop nearby. The walk wasn't too far. The art collection is remarkable! We were fortunate to hear a young lady explain how Peggy G acquired her comprehensive collection of modern artists. The Villa itself is wonderful and the placement... More

The art was ok. My boyfriend and I visited last week and aren't into a lot of modern art (which we found out at this exhibit). Not worth 15 euro each and I wasn't happy that I had to leave my purse in a locker (it wasn't a backpack, just a purse which contained my camera money and passports... Which... More

Amazing modern art collection. Great setting for this amazing collection. I would recommend the audio guide as it adds to the experience. A definite 'must do' in Venice.

A waste of time, for us anyway. If you're into modern, radical art, you'd like it. As for us, we don't understand why this is even open anyway. No words, really.

Visited in December and had no problems with crowds. The collection, displayed in the house that Peggy Guggenheim lived in, was excellent. Joined a small guided tour of a temporary exhibition (Azimut/h) which was really enjoyable and beautifully explained. Overall we enjoyed some of the finest art in a beautiful location and building.

The Art is well worth the visit if you can put up with the crowds. There appeared no effort to control the amount of visitors at any one time. The organisation of the Museum left a lot to be desired.

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.
