  • Most famous paintings can be found in this huge building in the heart of the City, with the new wing of 5 more rooms added just this year. An absolute must for any art lover, and if you are not quite ...  read more »
  • It is a gallery with a large number of works of Italian art. It takes at least 2 hours cross it and you can see a large number of altarpieces, paintings and sculptures.

  • Well, you have to like your devotional Catholic painters, and your grand thematic layouts, but hard to argue with the scale and thoroughness. The guides could be clearer in terms of building layout. Would have liked a few more Titians and a few less of the second tier, but very impressive nonetheless.
  • Old forgotten masters in a neglected but beautiful art museum. This certainly isn't the grande exposition of the louvre or the national portrait gallery but the dark religious motifs tell of a time guilt of conscience has yet to forget. My favorite part was looking at the glorious paintings of Venice of ye olde time and recalling, "Wait a second, I've just walked from there and seen that".
  • The building itself is worth to visit. Houses a vast collection of Venetian masters. Free entry the first Sunday of every month
  • Good experience- wasn't my favorite art gallery (completely personal taste in painters) but was still a great experience looking at all of the paintings and statues the gallery housed.
  • Nice visit with great paintings, sadly the audioguide left us sometimes expecting more explanations.
