I was lucky enough to be in Venice on the first Sunday in December, when this museum was open to the public free of charge. I spent several hours here exploring. It's true that the museum is undergoing renovations, some major works are not on...More

We visited on a drizzly Venitian day which was perfect timing to enjoy this phenomenal art. The first floor has been updated and English descriptions are alongside the Italian. The layout was also updated to showcase the art. Upstairs has not been renovated but has...More

We went here as part of a general visit to Venice - we are not art experts. However there was sufficient information and detail around the paintings for it to be interesting and understandable. Good to see how art developed in Venice.

I thought that the second floor was really boring. We were very disappointed by the collection. A lot of religious art, and very similar paintings too. I don't recommend.

We visited here on our last day in Venice and the art is very impressive here. The building is very big and a must visit if you are in Venice.

Not far from the Ponte dell'Accademia is the Gallerie dell'Accademia, a fantastic art gallery on the Grand canal. It houses some of the best venetian artists, such as Giorgione, Bellini, Veronese, Tintoretto. A fabulous building and works of art, well worth the entrance fee of...More

Perhaps this is more suited to someone who already has a knowledge and appreciation of classical art? However, if you go in with an open mind, you will see pictures and sculptures which are relevant to the history of Venice. I think there could be...More

Be aware that some of the internal stairs are slanted slick marble. I took a terrible fall and will be having some repairs done to my right knee. There are no railings or warnings. I was most disappointed in the bad habit of some museums...More

A visit to the Gallerie dell'Accademia is a must for anyone with a serious interest in Venetian art. The collection contains innumerable masterpieces. Perhaps it is an unfair comparison, but we had just visited the National Gallery in London. The National Gallery was far superior...More

Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob

We were there in August and just walked in. I think you will be fine. Go online and check to see if you can combine the entrance ticket with another attraction.
