Great art collections connect in the Dorsoduro Museum Mile in Venice

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 through eight centuries of art

Integrated itineraries, shared communications and discounts on admission tickets.

The cultural institutions of the Dorsoduro district renew their collaboration in the Dorsoduro Museum Mile on a more solid, practical basis.

Launched in 2015, the Dorsoduro Museum Mile connects eight museums along a mile long path in the Dorsoduro district, between the Grand Canal and the Giudecca Canal. On an itinerary of eight centuries of world art history, visitors can admire masterpieces of Venetian painting from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance in the Gallerie dell’Accademia and the latest contemporary production on display at the Punta della Dogana. On the way, visitors can also explore the former homes of great collectors such Vittorio Cini and Peggy Guggenheim and view their respective collections.


The first benefit for visitors is the possibility of a special discount on admission to each of the museums on the mile. From September 18, visitors who show a paid ticket from one of the institutions involved in the project will have access to the other collections at special rates. For example, if you buy a ticket for one of the Dorsoduro Museums or have a membership card from a partner institution, you will benefit from a discount on tickets, as follows: a reduction from €15 to €13 at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, from €15 to €12 at Punta della Dogana (including Palazzo Grassi), from €10 to €7 at the Palazzo Cini Gallery at San Vio, and from €12 to €9 at the Gallerie dell’Accademia.

To benefit from the discounts, you must display an admittance ticket from the previous museum you visited at the ticket office of the museum you are about to enter. Access and booking methods may be subject to changes due to evolving Covid-19 regulations (check individual institutions’ websites for updates).
