  • Museum which contains thousands of gorgeous paintings but about ten rooms at the time of my visit were under renovation. The guy at the ticket counter told us but unfortunately at that time we couldn't do otherwise and so we lost half of the route.

  • 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.

Where to stay in Venice

Save money and avoid tourist crowds by booking your accommodation outside the historical center of Venice. Central Venice is full of picturesque canals and narrow lanes, but it is also extremely noisy and hectic throughout the day and late into the night. You can explore the ancient city's charms at your own pace by staying at a comfortable B&B or small hotel located in the city's residential suburbs. To stay close to the finest beaches and restaurants, check into a hotel on the island of Lido, the city's famous seaside resort.
