Peggy Guggenheim Collection

Sestiere Dorsoduro 701, Venice 30123 Italy
29 reviews

The museum is great if you're really into art. If you're only kind of into it (as I was), your time and money is probably better spent elsewhere in Venice. It was nice though to see some Dalis, Pollocks, and Warhols.

    This beautiful old bridge is one of the few in the area that crosses the Grand Canal. There are great views from the bridge. It also seems to have become a victim of locks.

    Interpreti Veneziani

    This was definitely a random jewel of a find during our carefully planned trip to Italy that became the highlight of our days spent in Venice. The hotel we stayed at was a bridge away from the plaza where San Vidal Church, the venue in which the Interpreti Veneziani held their performances, was located. Having decided against a gondola ride, ...

    We discovered this street mistakenly after experiencing the acqua alta at San Marco's square and missed the night vaporetto. So we had to walk all the way back to the hotel. And we've taken this street, from Armani to Zegna, passing by Herm├Ęs and just watching the meticulously designed window shops of these grand designers, made me forget my anger. ...

    At first I didn't want to "waste" my vacation time in Venice by going to this museum. I figured, why the heck should I pay to see some great American artworks after I flew all this way to Italy? Well, if you are a fan of abstract expressionism (in particular Calder or Jackson Pollock), then this museum is a MUST ...

    Santa Maria della Salute, or as most Italians in Venice refer to it, La Salute, is a Roman Catholic Basilica built to honor the thousands of Venetians (Venice lost a third of it's population) who were killed during the outbreak of the Black Plague in 1631. The construction on the Salute started a year after the plague end, and over ...

    A beautiful Campo in the earth of Venice, quite large and quite close to La Fenice theatre. There are beautiful venetian palaces looking the Campo. I had once the chance to visit one private house there... It was completely covered by frescos inside.... Wonderful. Keeping ponte of Accademia at the back and walking through the Campo, More or less alf ...

    1 review

    The Chiesa di Santa Maria del Giglio, otherwise known as Santa Maria Zobenigo, resides in a surprisingly quiet area west of the Piazza San Marco. The church has what is considered one of the finest baroque facades in Venice. The church was founded in the 9th century but was rebuilt between 1678 and 1681. I didn't have the opportunity to ...

    Scala Contarini dal Bovolo

    1 review

    The Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo (also called Palazzo Contarini Minelli dal Bovolo) is a small palace with an external spiral staircase, with a plethora of arches, known as the Scala Contarini del Bovolo. Bovolo means snail describing the spiral form. It is a bit hard to find on a less-traveled side-street near the Campo Manin, near the Rialto.

    Piazzo San Marco was once called "the finest dining room of Europe" by Napoleon. What it is is a large square where people gather to look at the beautiful structures and touristy restaurants. Beware of pickpocketers. That said, go ahead and do the touristy thing if it's your first time here and wander over. It's cool to see history.

    The Rialto Bridge was built in the late 16th century, and is rather unique in that it was designed to allow Venetian warships to sail underneath the bridge. If you want a great view of the Grand Canal, this is the place to go.

    The Bridge of Sighs connects the Doge's Palace with the dungeons of Venice, hence the name. Unfortunately these days the bridge is covered with a weird scaffolding so the view from the outside is nowhere near as enjoyable.

    You've gotta do the gondola if you come to Venice. Eventhough the experience is mediocre due to all the constructions going constantly, you got to do it! The best thing to do before you go on the gondola, bring a bottle of wine, set a playlist to your phone, and have a good laughs with friends. You can't beat the ...

    The Doge's Palace was the most interesting place we visited in Venice. I enjoyed the maps of Venetian territory and the paintings of Venetian victories over the Ottoman Empire and the sack of Constantinople. The Golden Staircase reminds me of Versailles.

    This is definitely the most convenient way to get around Venice, and after walking everywhere it's probably also the least expensive.
