This museum has a wonderful collection of Venetian Art; a must-see if you are a fan of Titian, Tintoretto and Lotto. I especially liked Tintoretto's four scenes from The Life of San Marco - a good historical lesson as well.
The interior decoration of the museum is a work of art as well, resembling elegant sitting rooms at times. I definitely recommend getting a guide for the Accademia, or at least a detailed book.

The Accademia is one of the finest collections of Italian painting in the world. Visiting the Accademia introduced me to Tintoretto, who is one of my favorite painters to this day. Spending a morning in the Accademia is an essential part of visiting Venice.

You can purchase advanced tickets but when we went, there was no queue to purchase tickets and we got in and found the gallery quite uncrowded. This was one of the very few galleries we went to that allowed photographs (without flash).
This museum gallery is best known for its pre-1800s art in Venice. Situated on the south bank of the Grand Canal, it gives its name to one of the three bridges across the canal, the Ponte dell'Accademia, and to the vaporetto water bus stop.
The Gallerie dell’Accademia contains masterpieces of Venetian painting up to the 18th century, generally arranged chronologically with some thematic displays. The floor layout is not conducive to a continuous line. Some back tracking is required to see everything but the entire gallery is not large so you can view everything in a few hours.
Artists represented include: Gentile & Giovanni Bellini, Bellotto, Pacino di Bonaguida, Canaletto, Carpaccio, Carpioni, Rosalba Carriera, Cima da Conegliano, Fetti, Pietro Gaspari, Michele Giambono, Giordano, Francesco Guardi, Giorgione (da Castelfranco), Johann Liss, Le Brun, Pietro Longhi, Lotto, Mantegna, Rocco Marconi, Marieschi, Antonello da Messina, Piazzetta, Pittoni, Preti, Giambattista Tiepolo, Tintoretto, Titian, Veronese (Paolo Caliari), Vasari, Leonardo da Vinci (Drawing of Vitruvian Man), Vivarini, and Zais.
I particularly like Titian's Pietá, one of his last paintings which has a very impressionistic look; Antonello's Annunciation, strikingly modern in its psychological portrait of the Virgin; and Veronese's Feast in the House of Levy, a massive painting which was a last supper until he got called up by the Inquisition, who questioned its orthodoxy, so he just changed the name.

Stunning art museum, it houses the largest collection of Venetian art in existence with paintings covering five centuries. Some of the highlights here are "Cycle of St Ursula" by Carpaccio, "The Tempest" by Giorgione, and "Coronation of the Virgin" by Veneziano.
