Just walking around this most beautiful city, you know what Venice looks like on the outside, but if you want to get an idea of what this fairyland looked like on the inside? Ca'Rezzonico might be the place for you. It's a glimpse of Venetian history with period furniture, murano glass chandeliers and rare paintings. it's right on the Grand... More

This was not our first visit and we found again that the visit was justified by the quality of the building, its scale, and the collections on display. The collection of small paintings by de Longhi provides insight into life in the 18th century. The large fresco "The new World" by Tiepolo is one we wanted to see again and... More

We came here on recommendation of our concierge at Gritti Palace and are so glad we came! This is a beautiful preserved palace which has not only the palace but great works of art from Venetian masters... .. . Giambattista Tiepolo's Throne Room ceiling is a masterpiece and must see. Then on top floor there is a great art collection.... More

Very nice. The best museum has to be the Palazzo Ducale. I would give the Peggy Gugenheim a miss unless you are a huge art buff. There are far lovelier paintings in many of the churches. The churches are worth visiting.

Fascinating beautiful palazzo museum that is easy to access. There was hardly anyone there but it offered an intimate glimpse into the lifestyle and art of the time.

Everyone has heard of Casanova, right? The famous (infamous?) 18th Century playboy who seduced women of high society. He did that here, in what was the grandest palazzo in Venezia. As you stand in the stunning rococo ballroom as you enter, it's easy to imagine the masked merrymakers at lavish parties here. It must have been a ball! There are... More

Ca' Rezzonico is really interesting to tour. It was one of the grandest residences in Venice -- it was built originally as a great house/office by a wealthy Venice family, then was bought by an even more successful Venice family who "added on" very grand rooms. If you have a good tour guide you'll learn how Venetian palaces operated as... More

this is an opportunity to see a Venice palace, unfortunately the furniture has been replaced with an art museum. Even though the art didn't float my boat, I really enjoyed this place.

This villa is quite lovely and right on the grand canal. It was very interesting going through the first two floors but I must say the top floor was terrific with many beautiful oils on show and a few more contemporary pieces by Emma Chiardi which were stunning. Definitely worth a visit!
