One of the many places that can be visited by means of the card for museums etc that can be bought from the tourist bureaux. Great art and great insight into Venice of the past. Good cafe too!

I loved this place as it felt like stepping back in time, seeing art and palatial rooms as they were in the 18th century. Nothing like your typical museum. We used a Museum Pass which allows entry to 10 or so museums for 24.50 euro. They also make a nice break from strolling in the summer heat for some art... More

We went here expecting a museum or such, but this is actually a house/palace where people lived. It's very nice to see art and decoration in their original context, as opposed to a museum; it gives you a different perspective, a bit closer to the era and the people who lived there. Very much recommended.

Ok, we love old architecture and classical pantings so this place feels like heaven for us. Even our 3 year olds was entertained enough with the rooms on the first and second floor. The great ballrooms are along worth the visit. The second floor it is a continuation of the first, so you will see more of the same and... More

Ca' Rezzonico (The House of Rezzonico) was the family home of the Rezzonico family. Like most such places, it is now a museum. However, the building itself is as much an exhibit as the contents. It has all the sorts of things one would expect - stunning old artworks and artefacts, extravagantly decorated rooms (the two-story high ballroom is perhaps... More

This is a fantastic example of the extravagance of historical Venice. I visited the palace with my wife and 2 young daughters and we all loved the tour. We are not really into the art but it was an interesting never the less.

I had my breath taken away by this beautiful building. It is easily found, to begin with, as it is right by the Ca' Rezzonico waterbus stop on Route 1. From the stop, you turn right, over a small bridge and the entrance is on your left. On the day we went, the little wooden bridge was closed and we... More

Great Palazzo, overlooking the grand canal, with a magnificent Baroque Façade. They began building in the mid 17s', and it was finished in 1758. At this Palace, lived the nephew of Pope Clement XIII, from the Rezzonico family of Padua. Now days it’s a museum of "Venetian life at the 18th century". In order to preserve the treasures of other... More

Felt like a world away from the hustle and bustle, a gorgeous time machine back the opulence of venice past. Much nicer than simply seeing items laid out in a museum! Beautiful rooms and fantastic furnishings, with an astonishing must see Murano chandelier and lovely views over the canal. Stay after in the area for some fantastic food and enjoy... More

Everywhere you read about his place it is sold as a glimpse of life in an old Palazzo. However, it's really more of a museum of art and crafts. In all he rooms he information is all about the paintings and furniture, nowhere does it say what any of the rooms were actually used for. How would life have really... More
