An American museum with a Venetian atmosphere. Peggy Guggenheim bought Ca'Venier dei Leoni, an unfinished palazzo on the Grand Canal in 1948. She brought to Venice her outstanding collection of modern art and lived there for 30 years. Today the museum is visited by hundreds of thousands travelers. Closing day on Tuesday. Besides the artworks (Pollock, Picasso, Calder, Miro', Magritte, Ernst, just to mention a few) you'll like the spectacular terrace on the Grand Canal and the scultpure garden.
