From the architectural appearance of the Venice Academy of Fine Arts, the Academy of Fine Arts combines Gothic, Greek temple and Neoclassical styles. The college collects and preserves the works of Venetian painters from the 14th century to the 18th century, and collects many works by well-known painters such as Giorgione, Giovanni and Bellini. There are also masterpieces of Italian fine art such as Titian's unfinished "Portrait of Our Lady of Sorrows".
Masterpieces of Italian art such as Titian's unfinished "Portrait of Our Lady of Sorrow Jesus" are also hidden here.
Gallerie dell'Accademia is home to an extensive collection of works by Venetian masters of the 18th century. A must for any art lover, student of art, or art historian. It is also the home of da Vinci's Vitruvian Man. Sadly, when I visited and asked where I could view it, I was told "oh no, it's in the dark room," and when I said "okay, where is the dark room," I was told, "oh no, nobody goes in the dark room." Que sera, sera. I'd definitely recommend getting tickets in advance to ensure fewer issues with crowds.
After a visit to the fascinating Gallerie Dell'Accademie carry on walking along Fondamenta Priuli till you get to Campo San Trovaso where you will find Squero San Trovaso, where you can admire gondolas been built or restored. After that carry on walking till you reach the big Canale della Giudecca. turn left and walk along the Zattere, always full of Venetians out for a coffee or an ice-cream. Walk all the way to Punta della Dogana where you can see one of the most amazing views ever and then go and visit Santa Maria Della Salute, the votive church that Venetians dedicated to the Madonna to thank her for saving them from the plague.
