One of our favorite things about the visit to the Guggenheim Collection was to be able to have a delightful respite from sightseeing in the lovely garden cafe with a mid-afternoon snack. We find that museum restaurants always have the best food!

The cafe provides a lovely spot to relax and adds to the whole Guggenheim experience. The food is great as is the service. Add to this the art...the building and the story of the collection and you can easily spend half a day here away...More

Not particularly busy when we visited. Good coffee but I think we were forgotten after the drinks were delivered. Great museum though.

Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
