Dorsoduro Museum Mile
Eight Centuries of Art in a Venetian Sestiere
The Gallerie dell’Accademia, the Galleria di Palazzo Cini, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, and Palazzo Grassi – Punta della Dogana are once again connected in the Dorsoduro Museum Mile, a unique cultural itinerary covering eight centuries of art.
Launched in 2015, the Dorsoduro Museum Mile connects eight museums along a mile-long trail in the neighborhood of Dorsoduro, between the Grand Canal and the Giudecca Canal. Following an itinerary that spans eight centuries of world art, visitors can admire masterpieces of Venetian painting from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance in the Gallerie dell'Accademia, as well as the most recent contemporary artistic production on display at the Punta della Dogana. Along the way, visitors can also explore the former homes of Vittorio Cini and Peggy Guggenheim and explore their outstanding collections.
