Set in Peggy Guggenheim's former home, fronting the Grand Canal, this is a must visit for all art lovers. Arranged on the waterfront, in the garden and in every room is an astonishing collection of modern art from Picasso to Jackson Pollock.

The house, the collection, the setting, the garden - just takes you back to the time it was full of Peggy's guests. A brilliant collection, wonderful set and explained with specilal shows happening all the time. A must see. Also visit the collection's store - very nice items at reasonable prices

It was fascinating to visit what was once Peggy Guggenheim's home, and to view her impressive collection. I have a Klee poster in my bedroom from the first time I visited, and the second time, I felt that I really had to learn more about Peggy Guggenheim's life, so I bought a biography in the bookstore. In the garden, several... More

What's to like? If it had been how LITTLE she spent to amass the collection, I might have seen merit. But as it is, it's pure cultural barbarism.

Especially liked the works by her daughter Pegeen, Magritte and Kandinsky. But given that our museum pass ticket from Venicia unica (84 euro) bought online in advance for... More

Our first trip to Venice, this gallery was highly recommended by friends and family. We booked online the day before and arrived shortly after it opened to avoid the crowds. As it was early there was no queue. There are free lockers for coats and bags. The gardens and canal side are beautiful and we loved the art. Much of... More

Maybe art lovers would enjoy it more, but for me the main attraction was the building with wonderful views of the canal, and the garden.

As you may have guessed by the title I am not nuts about modern art in many of the varied forms it may come in. The Guggenheim museum is an interesting stop. The outside area is lovely and some of the furniture inside is very striking. If you don't absolutely love -and I do mean LOVE- modern art, then I... 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.
