Beautiful place

A wide collection of modern art, in beautiful settings. Do go out the front and sit to look out on to the Grand Canal.

We were tired of battling large crowds when we decided to try the Guggenheim. We were happy to find that the art was excellent and the crowds were small. It is set an a very nice building with nice garden and grounds. It was a great two hours during our visit Tucson AZ.

This palacette, now a museum, located at the Grand Canal, used to be her home, and it treasures an interesting collection of her painter friends from Paris, New York, all over the world. All the artists in the collection are now well known all over the world. You'll be transported to the boheme world of her epoch, by this magnificent... More

Peggy Guggenheim transformed her private home into a museum with a priceless collection of paintings from 20th century masters: Salvatore Dali, Max Ernst, Pollock and 200 other artists. The architecture of the palace is charming, lying right on the Grand Canal. Includes a sculpture garden and a little cemetery for her pet dogs. A must see!.

I am not the most informed art appreciator but this selection of art is amazing. I found the presentation of the art work interesting and could have spent the entire day looking around.

What a lovely spot to spend some time away form the crowds. We completely enjoyed the art, the location, the home, and the audio tour. It was a welcome break from the classical art in the rest of the city.

The art is fascinating and so is the glimpse into the life of heiress Peggy Guggenheim. However, the rooms of her villa/museum are relatively small and I can't imagine what this experience must be like in the height of tourist season. Nevertheless, on a perfect September afternoon, it was all about discovery and taking in the moment.

Peggy Guggenheim's home and collection is now managed by the Solomon Guggenheim foundation, and it is doing a truly excellent job. It is so nice to see Peggy's former home and all the beautiful works of art that she collected over the years. Most moving were the works by her late daughter. This really is a must for anyone visiting... More

Peggy Guggenheim was an interesting person, and ahead of her time This museum contains mostly modern work. You don't need an entire day here, as the museum was originally her home! I suggest taking the audio tour, as this will better explain her mission and life. The outside gardens are gorgeous, and the view of the Grand Canal is spectacular.... 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.
