Venice Museas

Venice Museum is the sort of place that looks like a painting. The views are breathtaking and some of the most popular places to take in these views include St. Mark’s Tower (Campanile di San Marco in Italian) or across the water at San Giorgio Maggiore. Both are very popular and it’s wise to arrive early or even book ahead for a tour as the queues can be long.

Art lovers will be in heaven here as there are numerous museums that showcase a wide range of art. You can visit museums like the Museo Civico Correr, Ca’ Rezzonico, or the Gallerie dell’Accademia which all focus on Venetian paintings from the 14th to 18th centuries. However, if you prefer more modern works then there are also galleries like the Peggy Guggenheim Collection or the Arsenale della Biennale di Venezia, which features contemporary art by some of the top artists in the world.

The National Archaeology Museum is home to a magnificent collection of antiquities. Its origins date back to the bequests of Domenico and Giovanni Grimani who donated their vast collections of Greek and Roman sculptures, bronzes, and ceramics as well as a collection of Egyptian, Babylonian and Assyrian objects. These were added to by other donations in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
