Accademia Gallery Venice

Whoever decides to visit a city like Venice does so because they know that it’s one of those places where you can find just about anything: from impressive buildings to amazing food and, of course, a whole lot of art. In Venice you can see art even in the littlest things, but if you want to enjoy art as much as possible, then you definitely have to go to Accademia Gallery Venice.

Accademia Gallery Venice

This academy was originally created in 1750, although it wasn’t until 1807 when the academy was finally settled in the very same place where it can still be found today: la Scuola della Carità. Apart from new work of arts created by a big amount of different artists, the Accademia Gallery Venice also got many of the pieces it still owns from other places such as churches who had to, from one reason or another, be eliminated.

Anyone who really loves art and, in particular, painting, will find the Accademia Gallery to be one of the best places they could possibly visit in their lifetime. In it you will have the chance to see masterpieces by the likes of Gentile and Giovanni Bellini, Vittore Carpaccio, Tintoretto, Tiziano and, of course, Leonardo da Vinci, one of the best known and most loved painters in history.

Luckily for everyone who wants to visit the academy, reaching is extremely easy, which means anyone can access it. In fact, the Accademia Gallery is situated in the south shore of the Grand Canal of Venice. Whether you want to reach it by foot or by taking a gondola and sailing through some of the extremely popular canals that fill the city is completely up to you.

And if once you have seen everything there is to see in the academy, simply step out of it and get lost in the streets that surround it, which is the best thing you can do to find out about some of the little known places worth visiting in Venice.

But, if you want to see something typical and popular, just walk north to find Saint Mark’s Square where you will also find the Dodge’s Palace, two of the many places that will make your trip to Venice unforgettable and will make you want to go back to the city of love as soon as possible.
