I have been to Venice many times and have put off viewing the collection at the Guggenheim by putting a higher priority on the Italian masters. Wrong! It may well be a collection of a wealthy American but it represents an amazing display of modern art in the very rooms in which the curator lived and worked. We arrived as... More

We were surprised to see such an amazing collection. I am not one to usually seek out museums, but there is a must while in Venice. The grounds and facilities are as impressive as the art collection. Note that the museum is closed on Tuesdays.

What a beautiful collection, absolutely fascinating. I like how they offer small, very affordable gifts for a loved one back home.

The gallery is tucked away on the Grand canal. I didn't book tickets but turned up at 10 with no cue. There is a peaceful courtyard exhibit of sculpture and then the main gallery opening onto the canal. If you enjoy modern art this is thoroughly recommended. There is also a pleasant cafe and restaurant.

There are some incredible works in the Peggy Guggenheim collection, including some really stunning sculpture set in the palazzo's lovely garden. It is also lovely to see photographs showing how the palazzo looked when the great lady lived there, with her art scattered across each room. If I have one criticism though, it's that the art is crammed in a... More

Seems unnecessary to rate this museum given the traffic it gets, but if you have any doubts about your need to add the Guggenheim Collection to your itinerary you shouldn't. I didn't know what to expect, but didn't think I'd see such a small space house so many significant and important pieces from the early 20th century. This collection really... More

Amazing that this was Peggy Guggenheim's Venice home. A lot of great art, no so many places to actually sit down and appreciate some of it (look, I'm getting old). Get the gondola over from San Marco (2 euro each way).

I couldn't stop smiling the entire time we were at the Peggy Guggenheim Museum in Venice. From the time we entered the gardens until we completed our tour through the modern art museum that had once been Peggy's personal palace, I could sense her love for the eccentric. Expressionist art fills her home, and even if you are not a... More

We very much enjoyed this detour from Italy's Renaissance-heavy museums. I especially enjoyed the pictures of Peggy in her home, surrounded by the art - I would have liked to see more of that.

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.
