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!

My husband and I stayed in an apartment really close to the Ca'Rezzonico but none of us were particularly excited to go see it, we did it more because we lived so close and it felt like we had to. We are so very glad we did though as it is a very beautiful place, full of history and character.... More

This is a fascinating view into 18th century Venice, from the palazzo itself to the art. We spent several hours here and there are benches in each room for you to sit and comfortably take in the majesty surrounding you. Each room is amazing as are the paintings on the top floor. Don't miss this museum.
