Gallerie dell'Accademia

  Campo della Carità 1050      +39 041 520 0345     more than a year ago
The gallery you should visit for a broad overview of Venetian and Italian Rennaissance art, the Gallerie dell'Accademia housing a pre-19th century museum collection of paintings from numerous big names. There are more than 20 medium sized rooms with works from Bellini, Canaletto, Carpaccio, Giorgioni (The Tempest) and Paulo Veronese (Feast in the House of Levi), and the Drawing of Vitruvian Man by Leonardo Da Vinci undoubtedly draws the biggest crowds. Set in the old bulding of the Scuola della Carità, it was once the gallery of the art academy of Venice, the name of which the Vaporetto stop and a nearby bridge still bear (Accademia and Ponte dell'Accademia). Beware entries are limited to a total of 300, so head there before noon for the best chance of not waiting in line.
