Fantastic paintings but got lost!!

Fantastic paintings- some vast in scale - mainly religious in nature. 12 euros to get in -per person. Worth a visit.

It exhibits Venetian old masters paintings painted all around Christ and Biblical scenes. For those searching great art of Duch/Flemish painters (except a few paintings of J. Bosch in a temporary exhibition) or even a bigger variety of Italian De Vinci or Michaelangelo then this gallerie is not the place. For those limited to Venetian painters and by subjects then...

Generally nice to visit if you are a little bit interested in historical (italian) art. All in all lots of catholic art in there with a strong reference to the city's history but pretty expensive despite a student's discount if you want to use an audio guide.

We enjoyed looking round but could have stayed so much longer but did not have time. The unexpected exhibition hidden away was not on our tour but a highlight.

If you're into religious art, this is the place for you! There's an impressive display over several floors with more than enough to marvel at for at least two hours. If you're not, well, perhaps skip this one!

Nice museum showing the Venetian catholic art during the different period of time. Price (12e) is a bit too much however. You can also admire the architecture of the building

You really can't compare the Accademia to anything else. Its a beautiful building, in a beautiful spot in Venice, and the works collected in there are absolutely stunning. Its a very calming, reflective space, I felt that I was free to be there as long as I needed to. I think seeing works like that make you remember that art... More

Went passed this a few times on the sea boat. Stunning building with ample history. Couldn't get to it as out of our schedule but got fantastic photos from the boat.

It has some of the most lovely images of Venetian art and a must for an overview of what Venice has to offer in a museum.

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.
