Venice appears almost like a dream. Completely situated on water, the roadways are all canals while the alleys and sidewalks are all built with stone. At every turn, artists brush paint on their canvases while musicians strum along to the rhythm of the water. It seems only right to pay homage to the beautiful artwork housed in this picturesque city of the sea.
Come explore the rich artworks housed at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice along the Grand Canal. This collector of modern art (married to artist Max Ernst) gathered pieces from Picasso to Warhol, Dali & Chagall. You will find featured works of Expressionism, Futurism, Abstract, Surrealism & more. Each painting, sculpture & photograph shares a unique story with its beholder. We ate up the tales like they were mystery chocolates in a box.
Get to it: stop off in the neighborhood of Dorsoduro by water taxi at Accademia (or stay a couple blocks away at a reasonable price like we did!)
Cost: 14 euros per adult. Discounts offered to students, seniors, & children.
Hours: 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Closed Tuesdays & Christmas Day.
