I adore modern art so this was a must see for me, it didn't disappoint. My youngest wasn't impressed and sat in the courtyard playing Pokemon but my eldest and I loved this place. If you have an interest in art you'll love it but for me the highlight was the photos in each room of how the rooms were... More

This museum is unexpectedly delightful. The collection, of course is a dream, but it is the personal narratives and pictures of Peggy Guggenheim, accompanying the art work, that put this place over the top!

We went there on the night in June it was free admission...a bonus. I am not a lover of modern art so really didn't appreciate the art that was displayed there. What was interesting though was to see the grounds/garden and the palazzo.

I was so happy to be able to finally get to this place. Ever since I watched a documentary about Peggy Guggenheim I've wanted to see her collection in Venice. And what a collection. She met some amazing artists and helped a lot of them through their careers, on the way collecting some magnificent pieces. I went from room to... More

This is a very interesting place to visit. There are short talks on the life of Peggy Guggenhiem which give a personal insight into her life and how the museum came to be. Really enjoyed this

We have visited the gallery now 3 times and it still maintains a degree of magic and covers a wide range of styles and artists and quirkiness. Pleasant cafe also for a drink and a snack

If you like modern art, this is absolutely the place for you and if you're like me and don't really get it, it's still a nice trip. The villa overlooking the grand canal is gorgeous and the small adjacent gardens are really nice. At least half the works have a paragraph description about them to help the less modern art... More

I was in a wheelchair. All of the collection was accessible, apart from the steps down to the Grand Canal. I managed to walk down these and was glad I had. The view was beautiful and we could have stayed there in the sun all day.

This is an amazing unmissable gallery with some truly superb works of art. My favourite parts are the terraces that face the canal and its marvellous views and the sculpture garden. The garden is very interesting and cool in the heat of the sun.

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.
