Top ways to experience Gallerie dell'Accademia
The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

RELIGIOUS ART OVERDOSE ;-)
Oct 2021
Good museum, but not a must if you're in Venice for a short time.
Very large collection of mostly religious paintings by the greatest Venitian artists ( 3Ts included).
Numerous, modern galleries displaying huge, impressive works.
Give yourself plenty of time though, or you might come out a bit nauseated from an overdose of martyrs and suffering saints...
Smaller rooms are closed off because of Covid sanitary measures so don't expect to see Da Vinci's Vitruvian. However, Bosch's Hermit Saints Triptych, is on view, but very dark and difficult to appreciate.
Gallery guided tour is highly recommended in order to not get overwhelmed.

Wow! What a discovery
Dec 2020
We stumbled upon The Gallerie dell'Accademia by accicend, which was fortunate for us because it was fantastic. It is a museum gallery of pre-19th-century art in Venice and northern Italy.

The collection includes Leonardo da Vinci's drawing of the Vitruvian Man, which is displayed infrequently because the work is on paper and is very fragile and sensitive to light.

Three Hieronymus Bosch at one place ...
Aug 2021 • Couples
My highlights:
- 3 Bosch triptychs - these alone are worth the visit. Where else can you see 3 of them? Prado ... else?
- lots of Tintorettos ... I particularly liked the "creation of the animals"
- Bellini's Madonnas with child. Particularly the piece with the red cherubim angels. On the piece with Catherine and Magdalena the expression on the small christ's face is priceless!

One of the world's greatest museums
Sep 2020
Everybody has their personal preferences and there are hundreds of exceptional works so I shall mention only what struck me particularly and what I would recommend to a friend:
-- the Virgins and Child by Giovanni Bellini, particularly the Virgin and Child with Sts Catherine and Magdalen AND the Madonna della Milicia Del Mar with the sleeping Child the spirituality of which leaves you speachless;
-- the THREE Hieronymus Bosch (there are so few of them in the world) which rank with The Garden of Earthly Delights in the Prado (and this is no mean feat);
-- the truly extraordinary Tintorettos, particularly the Madonna dei Tresorieri (Madonna with Child and Sts Sebastian, Marco, etc.) the construction of which is as sophisticated as Velazquez' Meninas in the Prado but St. Mark's Dream should not be forgotten ;
-- the cycle of St. Ursula by Carpaccio;
-- Veronese's Annunciation of the Virgin.
Of course there are so many more which you overlook at your own peril.

Huge, with outstanding paintings

Even if you are not a painting fanatic this is recommended as the stuff there is stunning. Get an audioguide (6€ extra) to fully appreciate it.

Beautiful artwork
Sep 2020 • Couples
The artwork on display is wonderful and since we’re under 25 our entry tickets were only 2 euros each! An absolute steal and well worth a visit.

Wonderful art in a lovely building
Oct 2019 • Couples
Lots of wonderful art - Venetian from 14th-18th centuries. The building itself is beautiful, with lovely ceilings. It wasn’t too busy when we visited, so we were able to enjoy a leisurely wander around.

Venetian Art
Jun 2020
Interesting art museum with masterpieces by Venetian masters such as Tiepolo, Veronese, Carpaccio and others. Leonardo da Vinci's Vitruvian Man masterpiece was not open to visitors.

Great art museum
Feb 2020 • Couples
Contains masterpieces of Venetian painting up to the 18th century. Look out for the paintings: Madonna and Child with St Catherine and St Mary; Sacred Conversation; Martinengo Pieta; The Tempest; St George; Resurrection; St John the Baptist; Virgin and Child. However, the painting Vitruvian Man by Leonardo da Vinci was not available as it was loaned to Louvre as part of its Leonardo da Vinci paintings exhibition.

Lots of excellent art
Feb 2020 • Business
A large art gallery full to the rafters with Venetian art. I particularly enjoyed the Canaletto's on the basement, although this part of the building is hard to find: you need to go to the first floor and then take an elevator down. Sadly there was nothing by Da Vinci on display, even though they have an impressive collection of drawings.
