On a warm day, this was a nice break from being outside and was very impressive. Lots of Bellini, Bosch, Longhi, etc. Rooms are organized well and not too overwhelming. I didn’t rate 5 stars as all of the printed guides in the galleries were...More

The gallery locates a very convenient hot spot in front of the academia water bus station, and it hosts so many beautiful paintings from the world famous artists dated back a few centuries. All of the paintings have the characteristics of the Catholic themes, which...More

Finally got to see the original David and was not disappointed! Get there early to avoid long line ups. 500 years this masterpiece has wowed people, stunning, just stunning!

I have no idea why this place isn't more crowded. It has a fantastic collection Titian, Veronese, Tintoretto, Piero della Francesca, Bosch, Giorgione's Tempest!

This museum is a beautiful and worthwhile stop while in Venice. The admission price is fair (you're in Venice, after all), but beware of closures. We couldn't access a good portion of the museum, and so could only see one of the Titians and only...More

Excellent tour by art historian guide Susan from Uniworld who showed us the highlights of the Accademia. She enabled us to see the paintings not only with our eyes but with our mind.

Seeing Michelangelo's David in person was unbelievable. Michelangelo's Prisoners were also very interesting as it showed you the process in which Michelangelo creates his sculptors. Apart from this sites, I found the other art in the gallery a bit random and underwhelming in comparison to...More

I'm not usually an "art loving" person but one has to admire/respect that this is a wonderful collection of art from centuries ago (I think I even saw some from 13th century). Some of the rooms have seats where you can admire the large paintings....More

Such a pleasure to visit here. I pre booked the tickets well in advance as I didn’t want to be disappointed because the museum only admit 300 people and...well we were almost alone at 9,30am. Finally a calm place that is so elusive in the...More

Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob

I visited in the middle of tourist season in August and simply got there fairly early in the morning and got right in.
