There were too many highlights from my Blogtour Milan and Venice trip to count. One of the favorites of the Venice visit was the visit to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection.  Stepping into the former palazzo of the eccentric art addict was such a dream.  The small but well curated collection was right up my alley.  I cannot imagine living on the Grand Canal as Peggy once did. I have included images of the pieces that really spoke to me.

Enjoy a trip to Venice with me…

  1. Loved our day at the PG museum~great discoveries xo

  2. That was a fantastic jewel of an art museum in Venice! The best of the best, in all ways. Plus that sculpture brings new meaning to phrase “hung like a horse”

    Loved being in Italy with you!!
