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.

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.

Came here on a rainy day but not just to get out of the rain. The exhibition of paintings is very good and also has some amazing silver work. Full of history and an amazing spiral staircase. Good vale for money

Really beautiful Gothic paintings, the Renessaince part is not so outraigoius. As it is a private founded collection, pieces are well selected. Small treasure box for art lovers.

After reading the reviews here I wasn't intending on going to this gallery. Most of the criticism was about the high price. I received a discount voucher from the Guggenheim so I thought I would give it a try. This gallery is small and has...More

The two teenagers traveling with me enjoyed the "funky and weird Renaissance art" of this museum, and it was a stark contrast to the Guggenheim that we had just visited. Quiet and dark (I would say this is not for young children) but a great...More

Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
