  • Following Rick Steve's advice, I went there around 5:00 pm, and there was no crowds. Frankly, the quantity of art there is overwhelming; I found the high point to be the Hieronymus Bosch Triptychs.  more »
  • This gallery contains a lot of religious art work from the 15th century, the highlights for us was the Hieronymous Bosch paintings. An average art gallery but set in a beautiful building !!  more »

  • This place is full of very high quality paintings that will leave you move than satisfied with your visit, despite the fact its entrance might not give you the real great essence of this place
  • Beautiful artistic Gallery. Very relaxing, it was a place to escape the peddlers for us for a few minutes and we ended up spending over an hour there.
  • Its a delight to see the works and revel in the history, moreover appreciate the reverance they have for art to conserve it with utmost care. Each piece is a story in itself, the dedication of the artist is beyond compare!!
  • This is the place where you get to know Venice culture and history. Great views!
  • A must visit. Not as crowded as the Ufizzi, and holds some of the greatest art masterpieces ever created.
