Museo Correr is situated in the ex-Royal Palace in Piazza San Marco and includes the Napoleonic Wing and the Procuratie Nuove. It was created out of the art collection which Teodoro Correr left to the city in 1830 and offers various tours: from the neoclassical rooms, with sculptures by Antonio Canova, to historical collections on the city’s institutions, urban history and daily life. The picture gallery, one of the most fascinating collections of Venetian painting from its origins to the early 16th century, includes works by Lorenzo Veneziano, the Bellini family, Carpaccio, Cosmè Tura, Antonello da Messina and Lorenzo Lotto, displayed in an interesting layout by Carlo Scarpa.

We bought our combo tickets here and toured this before the Doge's Palace. The rooms are very beautiful with lots of paintings. Not crowded at all. We enjoyed it a lot.

Once again, my wife and I were blown away by the architecture and wondered how they were able to build this building when they did. The exhibit was worth seeing and included art and sculptures from the last few hundred years.

We didn't expect to find so many interesting treasures here--and our only disappointment was that we stayed so long! Or that we didn't have time to linger longer... I'd recommend that you choose what things you want to see or set a length of time--there simply is too much to see in this amazing city...

If you want to visit a museum which is not crowded but full of great art and amazing Venetian historical pieces you have to go here. From the entry the museum looks small but don't be deceived it is huge and overlooks San Marco Square with some great views. If you buy a ticket here you also get entry to... More

The first few rooms of the museum are just that - rooms. Well decorated rooms with fantastic ceilings, but generally poorly furnished. It is once you enter the main part of the museum proper that the full glory is unveiled: a comprehensive history of Venice through small and large items, such as coins through to massive sculptures and flags. Maybe... More

This very excellent exhibition on the Weimar Republic Arts between 1919 to 1933 was very thought provoking as it covered the German world of politics, post war problems, social and economic aspects. It is a well structured display of paintings and prints showing some well known and lesser known artists. It is only on for a limited period.

This is include in the ticket for the Palazzo Ducale. Visit Correr first or on another day, otherwise you will get an overdose. It's a great museum, again full of art by the great painters I do not know much about, incredible painted ceilings, frescoes, a library and a lot of archeological finds. It is incredible.

The state apartments are excellent and well worth exploring. The information boards are in many languages and informative. The views to St. Mark's Square and The Grang Canal are superb so take a look the many windows. As you progress the many rooms it becomes more of a museum with a variety of themes. If you pushed for time you... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
