Ca' Rezzonico is a huge Renaissance palace on the grand canal. Like all the museums under this umbrella of care, it appears to have been significantly refurbished very recently. The Accademia and Doge's Palace are other places in the same group and these too have been significantly improved in the last two years. The modern parts, bookshop, lifts, toilets, ticket... More

Beautiful building on the Grand Canal. Lots of Art and objects of eighteenth-century Venice. it is interesting to note that the author of "A servant of two masters" lived here. You will know the play today as "One man, two guvnors".

The smells, the rooms and the sheer lavishness of the ballroom with Chandeliers, long large mirrors and other rooms in this place seemed to exude money and decadence. The paintings consisted of Bellini, Longhi and Tintoretto, mesmerising and indulgent at the same time. Definitely for Art buffs but wouldn't be lost on those people wanting to experience the beauty and... More

Beautiful Grand Canal palace filled with art, furniture, and domestic objects of eighteenth-century Venice. Numerous notables lived, visited, and died here, including the poet Robert Browning. One of its most mesmorizing offerings are the late paintings of Giandomenico Tiepolo, that were painted for himself alone and were moved here from his family's country house. They include the famous almost sinister... More

This place is great because it is not busy at all. We bought it as part of the "museum" card and decided to go. It has few crowds at all! The palazzo is really stunning and has a grand and gorgeous garden. The art is perfect for the 18th century and the video on how frescoes are restored is truly... More

Firstly, if you step from the vaparetto you must walk to Campo San Barnaba, cross the bridge on your right and immediately walk along the water to your right towards the sign of Ca' Rezzonico, even though it looks like you get off the water taxi right next to the building. Its vast halls and externsive art collection rivals almost... More

I have visited Ca Rezzonico a few years ago in the heat of a stifling summer's day and all I could think about was getting out. But on a cold wet January day, a visit there was wonderful starting on the 3rd floor and working down. Ask to be shown to the lift if you have dodgy knees like mine.... More

The first floor show's many rooms as thy wood have been n the 17th century. Above is an art museum exhibiting varying qualities of pictures. If you intend going to the Dodge's Palace then it will be worth purchasing a museum pass for 24 euro, it includes around 10 museums.

Take your time, don't plan too little time for your visit! This beautiful palace is a complex museum of paintings, furniture, and of itself. It accomodates three galleries: the Museo del Settecento Veneziano (the main part with staircase, big hall, frescos...) and two formerly private galleries, one of which you will access from the courtyard, the other and more important...

There are plenty of good reasons to visit the Ca'Rezzonico. There are paintings by Longhi, Canaletto and Guardi, frescoes by Giamdomenico Tiepolo, intricately carved wooden furniture by Brustolon, a magnificent ballroom, an ancient pharmacy. It was also home to the man who became Pope Clement XIII and the English poet, Robert Browning, lived (albeit very briefly) and died there. But,... More
