The main mode of travelling within Venice is by boat and you can use one to get to the dell’Accademia di Venezia. This place was originally founded by the state of Venetia in the year 1750. The main attractions of this place are the various works of art it houses. Most of the art pieces are from Venetian masters who lived in the 17th and 18th century. Among the artists whose works can be found in the collection of dell’Accademia di Venezia there are Leonardo Da Vinci, Carpaccio and Giovanni Bellini.

Among the most popular places for those on a tour of Art in Venice is the Museo del Vetro, aka the Glass Museum. The museum was established in the year 1861 on the island of Murano. The island itself is located to the north of Venice. Housing a Murano glass collection that is the largest in the world, the museum offers visitors a peak into the history of glass manufacturing apart from housing beautiful examples from great masters.
