Accademia & Santa Maria della Salute
The Accademia, an old time school of arts and one of the first in the world to develop art restoration, has turned into a museum of pre-19th Century Venetian art. A visit to this museum is a perfect way to better understand the history of Venice, with its many paintings and other forms of art. It holds some important masterpieces by Carpaccio and Tintoretto, both born in the city just to later become world renowned for their incredible paintings. Take advantage of being on this side of the canal and visit Santa Maria della Salute, one of the most beautiful and cherished churches in town.
