Gallerie dell’Accademia

The Gallerie dell’Accademia is an art gallery in Venice, Italy, situated on the banks of the Grand Canal. The gallery was originally created to be an art school, but now houses one of the most impressive collections of pre-19th century art in Venice. The academy was opened in the 18th century to be a place to teach sculpture, civil architecture, and painting, and some of the earliest teachers there ranked among the most important artists in Venice. Now the Gallerie dell’Accademia has a collection of Venetian masterpieces by such artists as Johann Liss and Leonardo da Vinci.

  • Explore Rooms 6 to 10 of the Gallerie dell’Accademia and view the Renaissance-Mannerist masterpieces including Tintoretto’s “Creation of the Animals,” one of the most famous paintings in Venice.
  • See Venice’s artistic defiance against Rome, Paolo Veronese’s controversial “Feast in the House of Levi,” that was once condemned by the church.
  • Take a guided tour through the Gallerie dell’Accademia and an art expert will explain the cultural and historical significance behind each of the paintings.

The Gallerie dell’Accademia is situated near the Accademia Bridge on the Grand Canal, so it is not hard to reach on foot or using Venice’s unique system of public transportation. The easiest way to get around Venice is to walk along the pedestrian-only paths on the Grand Canal, which will allow for close-up looks at the many interesting buildings. Most Venice citizens get around via vaporetto, which are small, inexpensive water taxis that snake through the canals. Those who want a slower pace should hire a gondola, which is an easy way to enjoy the sights that flank the canal.
