Below is a list of the main cultural venues in Venice
The Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia administers an immense heritage of historic, artistic and cultural treasures.
It was instituted on March 3rd 2008 with a resolution passed by the City Council of Venice.
The Foundation manages 11 museums including the Doge’s Palace, the Correr Museum, Cà Rezzonico, Cà Pesaro and the Glass Museum.
The churches of Venice contain some of the most extraordinary artistic treasures in the world. One thousand years of history and faith are expressed in their architecture, paintings, sculptures, finely crafted gold and precious fabrics preserved in these fascinating monumental constructions. St. Mark's Basilica, the Basilica of Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, the Basilica della Salute and the Church of San Pietro di Castello are just a few examples of these remarkable Venetian monumental buildings.
Visitors to Venice have a wide range of museums and foundations to choose from.
There are museums dedicated to the history of the city, to contemporary art or to a specific historical period.
So many places to visit, but be sure not to miss the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Palazzo Grassi & Punta della Dogana, or the Biennale di Venezia
