We chose to see the collection with the help of a private guide (through Viator). The art collection and the story of Peggy Guggenheim is worth the visit. Consider a guide. Our guide made it 10x more interesting and informative.

Set on the Grand Canal, in Doursoduro - the setting could not be better. Housed in an 18th century palazzo, the collection was originally Peggy Guggenheim's private collection and has been expanded. Highlights everywhere but include: - Giacometti in the gardens - Max Ernst (former beau) - Braque - Pollock - Kandinsky - Klee - Magritte It goes on and... More

Some art galleries can overwhelm with just too much to see. This one is excellent as lots to see but combined with stunning views of Grand Canal and beautiful sculpture gardens the paintings still impress without wearing you out.

The place itself, where the Gallery is situated is really extraordinary. Peggy Guggenheim permanent collection is small, but it is really worth seeing.

This was our second visit to Venice & the Guggenheim collection was one of the things to tick off on our list of things to see. The collection is housed in a building on the opposite side of the grand canal from San Marco , but is only around a 15 minute pleasant walk through the narrow streets via the... More

A collection of modern art in a wonderful building and tranquil garden if you manage to avoid the crowds and you can. Amazing art on display.

The fabulous art aside it is worth visiting just for the view from the jetty onto the Grand Canal. The location is beautiful, spotless and naturally a haven of tranquility in an otherwise busy city. As a fan of many of the artists exhibited here I found the collection wonderful. At the time of our visit there was a superb... More

Although the setting was magnificent, as were the images of this lady living here surrounded by her 'art'. However it was a second rate collection of indifferent art. The descriptions against some of the painting were pretentious, the one I loved best was 'and then he discovered green'. Sorry, not for me. Better to go into the nearby churches to... More

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.
