Overview
More
Located halfway between the Accademia Galleries and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, this 16th-century palazzo (and the adjacent Palazzo Loredan whose side elevation fronts on the Grand Canal) were once the residence of Count Vittorio Cini. The first floor, or Piano Nobile, furnished with antiques and objets d’art reflecting the building’s original character and the personal taste of this great collector, features thirty paintings of the Tuscan school donated by Yana Cini to the Giorgio Cini Foundation in 1984, together with the section of the palazzo which currently houses the gallery.

This is a marvellous, predominantly Florentine collection. Between the Academia and the Guggenheim it is full of lovely pictures, including a Piero, a Botticelli and a Pontormo.

The historic palazzi dates back to the 16th century and is entered through a narrow doorway off the street that weaves between the Accademia and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. It is therefore easily missed. If you have visited the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, you will receive...More

This is an unusual place for Venice. Most of the collection is by artists from Tuscany & places beyond Venice. The half dozen rooms include jaw-droppingly beautiful furniture, interesting sculpture, and paintings. If you don't want to see superb works by Piero della Francesca, Lorenzo...More

The problem I had with this place was the difference between what the advertising promises and the reality. Granted, the temporary exhibition on the top floor, about Lyda Borelli was interesting. But I found the quality of the permanent displays to be rather poor, the...More

The museum has some very important art from the 13th century and works by Giotto ,Filipino Lippi and others. On the 3rd floor there is a very good exhibition by the Brazilian artist Vic Muniz. This is a worthwhile visit. Yona S.

this is a private collection of medieval and renaissance art in a wonderfully restored palazzo (actually two joined together). This is definitely worth seeing if you're going to the Gallerie dell'Accademia as well.
