  • The Gallerie dell'Accademia is the most influential art gallery in Venice. A museum mainly focused on Venetian art before the 19th century. It is a wonderful experience to visit this beautiful museum....  more

  • Great museum with an impressive art collection of mostly local artists from the last 6 centuries. Convenient navigation, not very crowded (as I was there). The only remark is the ticket purchase process. I have bought tickets online and had a QR code, but actually it doesn’t help you to skip the line or gives any discount. You still have to wait to get to the cash desk to scan your ticket, and that’s all You don’t get a paper ticket or anything else, so it’s unclear why not just let you in when you have the ticket already.
  • Guardian of Venetian and Italian painting, it is an essential stop in Venice. Titian, Canova, Tintoretto, Bellini, Giorgione to name a few of the greatest artists found there. Comfortable price, many facilities. Courteous staff. Let yourself be astonished.
  • A must do, really. Our 9 year old boy enjoyed it too. It's not too big either. You should find most of the artwork incredible, whatever your tastes.
  • An amazing art museum which surprisingly does not get a lot of attention as far as Venice attractions go. This is entirely unfair...the museum is incredible! It holds amazing works of renaissance art and some beautiful religious iconography. The building itself is a beauty to look at. Warning: this museum is much larger than you might think. A true gem of Venice attractions!
  • Good collection of art works, good information provided in text, audio guide was probably not worth it- but limiting. The temporary exhibition was great too. Map provided via scan code, staff were pretty good.
