We wanted to go here to see the Canaletto's, the pharmacy and the ballroom. The paintings were lovely, as was the ballroom, but as a dancer I would have loved there to be some music playing and had a dance. It wasn't busy so would have been easy to do and given the room the ambience it deserves. The pharmacy... More

Less crowded as slightly away from the main square, situated in the lovely dorsoduro which merits a visit in itself. The audio tour is a must to appreciate your surroundings! Highly recommended.

Went to see this place as good reviews. The original furniture and paintings were all lost or sold and the venetian authorities have been replacing over many years, but the wall and ceiling decoration is just great. We bought tickets at the door which gave us extra discounts on other places which is worth doing.

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.
