A haven for lovers of Renaissance art
The behemoth of Venice art galleries is the Accademia, positively heaving with masterpieces from the last seven centuries or so. If you can survive such an overdose of art, you can definitely face some of the more contained galleries, such as the delightful Ca' Pesaro and the glitzier Peggy Guggenheim Collection. If you are looking for art to buy, head to the San Marco or Dorsoduro districts, where there are plenty of private galleries selling works by local and international artists.
