    This is called Venice card
    3 more images

    Favorite thing: With the Venice card, access to Doges Palace, Correr Museo, with archelogical, and art museos, and a number of others are included. Price on line was 22 Euro, and Doges alone was 11 Euro, and Correr was about 8 Euro. Besides these great sites, there were four palalces that are converted to museums that are super tours. Ca Pescro, Ca, Mocenigo, and Ca' Rezzinico are to be seen.

    Accademia

    Front of the Accedemia

    Favorite thing: Like most big Italian cities, Venice has some fantastic art to be seen. One of the best places to do this is at the Accedemia which holds the definitive treasure house of Venetian painting.

    It is considered one of Europe's great museums. Painting range through the years from the 13th to the 18th centuries and is the largest collection in the world of Venetian painters.

    Famous names such as Lorenzo Veneziano, Tintoretto and Titian have works displayed here.

    It costs €6.50 (in 2003) to get in and is open Tuesday to Sunday 8:15am-7:15pm and Monday 8:15am-2pm. You can walk from St Marks Square taking the street in the far left hand corner of the square with your back facing St Marks and eventually over the Accedemia bridge.

    Don't forget the outdoor art!

    Favorite thing: Venice itself is a living breathing museum. You don't have to go inside anything to be surrounded by art. Venice is art.

    Here are a few photos of outdoors art I took during my last visit. I could easily put up a photo of every church, bridge, or building I saw too. I didn't take any murano beads photos, too bad.

    Fondest memory: I miss feeling like I stepped back in time.

    Proust In Venice

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: My gondola followed the course of the small canals; like the mysterious hand of a genie leading me through the maze of this oriental city, they seemed, as I advanced, to be cutting a path for me through the heart of a crowded quarter which they bisected, barely parting, with a slender furrow arbitrarily traced, the tall houses with their tiny Moorish windows; and as though the magic guide had been holding a candle in his hand and were lighting the way for me, they kept casting ahead of them a ray of sunlight for which they cleared a route....
    The next day I set out in quest of my beautiful nocturnal piazza, following calle after calle which were exactly like one another and refused to give me the smallest piece of information, except such as would lead me further astray...

    Libreria Sansoviniana

    Favorite thing: This is actually an old library, right in Piazza San Marco. At the time of my visit I caught a nice exhibit about the gold looted by Napoleon, which was eventually returned. I have a fond memory of a kind gentleman who explained the ceiling paintings to me and showed us around.

    Salvador Dali Exhibit

    by nicolettart Updated Oct 13, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: I will never forget the awesome Dali exhibit I saw in Venice. It was near the Rialto Bridge, I can't remember exactly where, but easy to find. Dali's work was shown as three-dimensional sculptures. The most memorable was his "Persistence of Memory", you know the one with the clocks melting in a surreal landscape. There were bronze sculptures of clocks melting, in verdigris and gold leaf---it was so cool.
    I know what you're thinking, "gee, what a geek".

    Feeling Venice

    Enrico Antiporda painting

    Fondest memory: "Oh it's so old... Oh sometimes it doesn't smell fine... Oh, there are too much tourists..."

    My God, what are they talking about? It's so sspecial, so original, so surrealist, so unforgetable, so fool, so exciting...
    Don't listen to them, Venice will be always Venice, even underwater

    Chiesa dei Scali

    Favorite thing: Fabulous facades and sculpture adorn almost every church and many of the other buildings. It is not necessary to buy a ticket to a museum to see great works of art. Just roam the city and gaze upon the wonderful buildings.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: GALLERIA DELL'ACADEMIA
    In this wonderful little Museum, in Campo de Carita, just crossing the Accademia Bridge, you will find wonderful masterpieces of Titian, Tintoretto and Veronese. Don't miss Tintoretto's Transport of the Body of St. Mark, which shows St. Mark's body being stolen from Alexandria (the camel in the painting is just incredible).

    the peggy guggenheim museum!...

    by johntchow Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: the peggy guggenheim museum! an awesome collection of modern art. the collection is the perfect size, not too small to get bored and not too large to get overwhelmed.

    the collection features prominent pieces from rene magritte, joan miro, picasso, dali, as well as many other influential contemporaries.

    Fondest memory: traversing the city by foot and getting lost everywhere. the romance that fills the air thanks to many of those riding in those expensive gondola rides.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: I loved the unexpected art work. The doge mannequins, the artist self-portrait in the picture here, the posters of other artist's impending shows. The rest of Venice was expected and beautiful, but these were little tidbits of what Venetians were doing today.

    Favorite thing: Keep your eyes open when in Venice. You are surrounded by art, some old and some modern, like this Mona Lisa display.

    Artist at work

    Favorite thing: On the island of Murano, you can watch artists make beautiful glass objects. In this case, the artist make a little horse in about 1 minute. Truly amazing.

    Favorite thing: This is one of the few palaces open to the public. It is worth a visit, especially if can catch an exhibit here. I thought the heads above the doorways were so expressive!
