We essentially went to see the interior of the Ca D'Oro, as the external front was so impressive. Also there was an exhibition titled "Divine" of costume jewelry...the advert for 'Divine' showed a seductive photo of Sophia Loren in her '60s prime formmmmmm....I joking hoped she would appear on my visit ! Both exhibitions were well laid out and curated... More

I was staying at the hotel across the alleyway and, on the last day there, realized that this Galleria had actually existed right under my nose this whole time -- really glad I made the choice to check it out, because it is really a treasure. The space is well-maintained and well-curated -- it appears pretty small at the outset,... More

I mostly went I because I was interested to see the "guts" of this palazzo. I was surprised, however, to find that they really have an incredible collection of art that ended up interesting me a great deal. Great Venetian art, as well as some fairly significant artists (Van Dyck). Great balcony. It's worth a visit if you have a... More

The magical setting of the Ca' d'Oro, one of the most beautiful palaces in Venice, is home to an extremely eclectic collection of paintings, sculptures, marble and bronze reliefs, fragments of frescoes and tapestries. There are a wide range of artists represented, including such heavyweights as Andrea Mantegna, Antony Van Dyck, Francesco Guardi and Gian Lorenzo Bernini. The exhibits are... More

I spent a rainy afternoon here and it was without doubt one of the highlights of my month in Venice. The building is superb and beautifully maintained, the sculptures and paintings in the upstairs galleries are museum quality. There are wonderful views of the fish market and Gran Canal from the three terraces. The simple elegance of this building was... More

Heading in the direction of the Ca'd'Oro vaporetta stop to visit a modern art museum we stumbled upon a beautiful sun soaked courtyard. We soon realised the courtyard belonged to the Ca'd'Oro (golden house) Franchetti Gallery. We were lured in. The building itself was built in the late 1400s and in 1894 Giorgio Franchetti acquired it and housed his important... More

The story of one man’s passion and drive in restoring a medieval building and then filling it with personally chosen treasures. These included exquisite examples of fine art, sculpture, bronzes, ceramics, silverware, tapestries... A wonderful chance to see one of the very best palaces on the Grand Canal along with its eclectic art collection - a real highlight of our... More

I specifically wanted to see the floor at water level of this museum. It did not disappoint. Wonderful views from the upper floors and then to stumble upon the Jewish treasures once hidden, now found and restored, was a wonderful unexpected treat. I was moved by the experience. Our visit was special to me.

There's a very interesting mix of classic and modern art, the obligatory religious art and the rediscovered Jewish treasures hidden in the Ghetto before WWII. Such a lovely building too with impressive views of the Grand Canal.

We appreciated being able to see this lovely structure. We enjoyed the religious art from Franchetti's collection. We weren't as excited with the pieces that had been added to fill up some of the upper floors. For us the modern art was a miss. The special Jewish Ghetto collection was interesting. Expensive for what it is.

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
Cannaregio
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighborhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
