Venice Accademia Gallery (Gallerie dell'Accademia) Tours

Perhaps the best collection of art in Venice is in the Accademia Gallery, or the Gallerie dell’Accademia, in the Dorsoduro district right on the Grand Canal.

The Venice Accademia Gallery, once associated with the city’s art academy, is a collection of pre-19th century art. The museum was first opened in the early 19th century, and is still housed in the same building as it was when it opened - the Scuola della Carita, in a building partly designed by the famous Italian architect Andrea Palladio.

The best-known piece of art in the Accademia’s collection is the “Vitruvian Man” sketch by Leonardo da Vinci. There are paintings by Titian, Tintoretto, Canaletto, Andrea Mantegna, Piero della Francesca, Hieronymus Bosch, Giovanni Bellini, and Veronese on display, and there are temporary exhibitions as well.

Guided tours of the museum are available, sometimes as part of larger tours of Venice, or you can buy individual tickets to explore the collections on your own. Visiting with a guide can ensure skip-the-line access to the museum and insights about the artwork on display.

Practical Info

While da Vinci’s “Vitruvian Man” is the most famous piece in the collection of Venice’s Accademia Gallery, it is not always on display. The paper on which the sketch was made is fragile enough that it’s only put on public display periodically.
