The Gallerie dell'Accademia is a state-run museum, which houses the most important and largest collection of Venetian art, naturally located in the centre of Venice, more specifically in the Dorsoduro district.
Like the rest of the city, the Gallerie dell'Accademia is visited every year by millions of tourists, many of whom travel to Venice by car.
Are you planning a trip to Venice? If you want to travel to the lagoon city by car, remember that it is impossible to drive around the centre of Venice, so you will need to find a car park in Venice where you can leave your car before starting your visit.
There are few parking areas in Venice, however, and the main ones are located either in Piazzale Roma, the main road zone in the historic centre, or on the mainland, in Venice Mestre.
However, given the large number of people in the city, Parclick recommends that you book your parking space near the centre of Venice in advance. At Parclick you can book a parking space in Piazzale Roma, from where you can get to the Gallerie dell'Accademia on foot, or book a parking space in Mestre near Venice Mestre Station. In fact, from Mestre station many trains and buses depart, which in about ten minutes can take you along the Ponte della Libertà to the Santa Lucia station in Venice, in the historic centre.
Once you reach the centre of Venice, you can take a walk through the streets and alleys of the city to the Gallerie dell'Accademia, or use the public service waterbus, which will take you to the Gallery as you sail along the Grand Canal. Right in front of the Gallerie dell'Accademia are the waterbus docks 1, 2 and N.
As already mentioned, the Gallerie dell'Accademia houses an invaluable collection of Venetian works of art, all dating back to the period between the fourteenth and eighteenth centuries. Here you can admire the masterpieces of Tiziano, Tintoretto and Giorgione, and on special occasions you can also see the original design of the Vitruvian Man by Leonardo da Vinci.
The Gallerie dell'Accademia was opened in 1817 by the Accademia di Belle Arti of Venice, which shared its headquarters until 2004.
After visiting this interesting museum, you can also reach the main points of interest of Venice in a few minutes.
Just opposite the Galleria building, there is the Ponte dell'Accademia, which crosses the Grand Canal and connects the Dorsoduro district with the San Marco district, the heart of Venice's city centre, where you can visit St Mark's Square, with the symbolic Basilica of St Mark, the Doge's Palace, the Clock Tower and the Museo Correr.
