Punta della Dogna
Controlled by the François Pinault foundation, the same trust in charge of Christie's auction house, this is a museum-worthy gallery in the heart of Venice. Set inside Venice's old 17th-century customs house, it showcases Pinault's impressive private collection that is comprised of some 2,500-pieces of modern art. The location, at the tip of the point where the Grand Canal meets the Giudecca Canal, is equally stunning. After you've finished browsing the art collection grab a pastry or a small bite at the in-house Dogana Cafe.
