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

Visitors to Venice rarely get to see the texture and beauty of life in a real palazzo. They are still largely closed to outsiders. This is your chance. An intriguing and beautiful look at how the rich folk alkong the Grand Canal furnished there wonderful palaces. A must see!

Located on Grand Canal the museum spread over 4 floors is great value and can be returned to again and again. [Think Wallace Collection]. I especially like the Tiepolo frescos, the Longhi room and the ceilings!! The shop is worth visiting, but remember you have to carry the books home! Additionally the gardens provide a quiet haven to rest and... More

Based on travellers reviews, we decided to visit Ca'Rezzonico with our kids, expecting the grandeur of a great Palazzo. The best without a doubt was the second floor rooms and esp the lady's bedroom and boudoir, but most of the rooms were completely empty or very scarcely furnished so you didn't really get the sense of being in a grand...

As overwhelming as it should be - and almost small enough to get around before our boy (7 y) lost his patience. Incredible that people really lived here. HIGH ceilings, thick curtains, intricate patterns, beautiful paintings, gold and crystal. Wow!

The Palazzo is beautiful and definitely worth the price of admission. A large art collection, but most of it was not very interesting (but we were definitely on art overload at this point in the trip). It was also not very crowded and you can go at your own pace and actually enjoy the works unlike many other museums in... More

Well worth the entrance fee on account of the huge variety of beautiful art works and furniture. Photography without flash is allowed, so we have many memories of this lovely palace. In early July it was quiet and cool. We've visited many museums across Europe. This is my no.1 in Venice and highly recommended.

This palazzo on the Grand Canal is well worth a visit. There is just one room after another of beautiful and interesting furnishings and art, so be sure to allow enough time to appreciate it all. My husband probably would have been happy to spend almost 3 hours there because he wanted to take photos of everything, but even if... More
