    Not planned but the heat pushed us there a Tuesday where other museums were closed. The typical works are from the collections of Venice: the types of icons, the Renaissance view of other centuries but from Italian schools and wonderful painters and a few Northern (bosch, bruegel). It is very good, it's beautiful.

    The gallery was surprisingly uncrowded on the day of my visit. I found the layout very challenging and was unable to understand the art in context because I could not figure out the order of visiting ...  more »

    I had anticipated on a voucher to avoid a possible give endless, there was nothing... Few people, for a gallery where we have not seen as many places restoration... On the other hand, less to do, but the price remains the same... The Gallery dell'Accademia is also known to host the work of Leonardo da Vinci, the Vitruvian Man (visible to visitors just 2 days per year for an exceptional event, because the original is in a state very very fragile). The gallery would have everything to gain to set up a college simulated to not disappoint the younger and they gain visitors... After the works of Bellini, Bosh, etc... still wonderful...

  • 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.
