Guided tour to the Peggy Guggenheim collection in Venice

Museo Guggenheim Venezia

This guided tour will take you through the Dorsoduro sestiere with its art galleries and craft workshops to visit the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in the charming Palazzo Venier dei leoni that was the Venetian home of the American collector. The museum is not big, but it has a great interest. The collection of 20th century paintings and sculptures was created by Peggy Guggenheim herself and includes works from the major European and American movements. Paintings, sculptures, and drawings by Pablo Picasso, Alexander Calder, Alberto Giacometti, Jackson Pollock, and Joan Miro are on display. You will also visit the Shulhof collection with works by Cy Twmbly and Donald Judd, the sculpture garden and the terrace on the Grand Canal.  You will learn news and curiosities about Peggy Guggenheim’s life, see some of her photos taken in the house and some original furniture still displayed in the house-museum.

The Peggy Guggenheim collection is closed on Tuesday.

Duration 2-3 hours. A private art gallery can also be visited.
