Really good to get a Guide book, you can then see what appeals to you to do.

Get that Top 10 Venice by DK Eyewitness Guides. A really super publication, thin, easy to follow, has some good photos, 10 best of everything, e.g. museums, hotels, restaurants, shop, fits into a pocket or a pocket book, and has enough info to keep you busy and happy. Sophie is right as to what appeals to you. Say, if you like modern art, then Peggy Guggenheim Gallery may be your call. Just bear in mind that attendance of the museums and galleries is voluntary. If you love painted art and/or sculpture, then by all means, but do not feel like you have to.

I second the DK Top Ten Venice guidebook recommendation. Its the best we've found. Here is a Top Ten list we recently put together for Venice as well, might prove useful in helping you plan.

With only two days, unless you have a strong interest in a specific type of thing, I wouldn't spend the time in the museums. The city itself is the biggest attraction.

Walk the streets and alleys. Visit the Doge's Palace (book the Secret Itinerary Tour), Campanile and the Cathedral Basilica. At the Cathedral, go up to the gallery for a better look at the mosaics, the roof and a walk through the small museum. Enjoy the cafes and bars. Stop in a other churches which catch your eye. If you enjoy classical music, catch an Interpreti Veneziani concert. Make at least one vaporetto the length of the Grand Canal.

Don't miss the Peggy Guggenheim collection.

Just click on the dotted floor plan for the various rooms in the museum.

The Peggy Guggenhein collections is very modern and for some of us it is not even on the radar tro visit.

I think the Accademia is the best art gallery in Venice for old Venetian art i.e. up to the 18th century. It has art purely by Venetian artists such as Titian, Giorgione and Canaletto.
