What to expect

Enjoy a private tour to visit the most important and famous museums in Venice, the Accademia Galleries. Inside, your guide will take you to see the extraordinary collection of Venetian paintings created between the fourteenth and eighteenth centuries by great masters who made the history of European painting. You can admire works belonging to the Byzantine art, to the Gothic period, until you'll meet the Renaissance artists such as Bellini, Giorgione, Tintoretto and Carpaccio and the 1600 "landscape artists" such as Longhi, Canaletto and Guardi.

The Galleries of the Accademia di Venezia also host the "Vitruvian Man", the famous pencil drawing made by Leonardo da Vinci at the end of the 15th century. Because of its inestimable value, the work is exhibited only on rare occasions.

At the end of the tour, you'll have the chance to walk, with your private guide, around the "artistic" Dorsoduro district "Sestiere Dorsoduro". There, you'll see the most representative spots such as Campo Santa Margherita, Fondamenta Zattere and Campo San Barnaba.
