This palace is staffed by friendly volunteers and we felt was as highly presented as a National Trust property in the UK - this is a great compliment to this museum. There a written guides in various languages in each room and it is a beautiful palace to visit. They also have a stunning painting by Bellini. We would definitely... More

simply amazing, a master piece by Carlo Scarpa. instead of fighting against water, he worked with it and let it be part of the design. full of details, truly mesmerising.

I first visited a Scarpa museum in Verona on a previous trip, and was thrilled to find out about his renovation of the Querini Stampalia, a palace on a modest square in Venice. The entrance is over a pitcturesque bridge, with gondolas going beneath, and on the ground floor there is a cafe that is open to everyone, although there... More

Your entry ticket to the museum allows you to visit the temporary contemporary art exhibit and as well as the museum. Each room in this former home is dedicated to a period in art history. Be sure to pick up one of the guides in your particular language as you visit each room to get details on the paintings, stuccos... More

Well worth seeking out this gem of an art museum, if nothing else for its beautiful courtyard. When we visited, we loved all three current exhibits, which were modern - a good respite from all the Renaissance art. We also ate in the cafe, which was delicious, and shopped in the museum shop, which had an excellent selection of items.... More

The first time I visited Querini Stampalia was because my husband wanted to see Scarpa's architecture. We now visit every time we're in Venice as it happens to have a great cafe with a shaded outdoor area just next to the garden. The menu is limited but always tasty and it is excellent value for money. No extra charges! Just... More

this is a great attraction. We had heard of it through an Architectural book. Great bookshop as well as modern art exhibits. Also visit the Olivetti showroom designed by same architect who started the foundation (Scala I think)

It was set up to help the working man become educated, hence why it is open in the evening until 11.00 every day except Monday when it is closed. There are interesting paintings by Bella of Venetian life in 17/18th centuries. Excellent examples of the work of the artisan/self taught architect Carlo Scarpa, see the garden. Great coffee shop. Probably... More

Not only is this a museum showing how a phenominaly rich family lived in Venice hundreds of years ago, it also is a historical showcase for Venetian art and history in general. In addition to the museum there also is a cafe and a library with 350,000 volumes from the 1400's to the 1900's.You can see musical instruments, family portraits,... More

We stopped here on our walk to San Marco from our B&B located in San Croce. A friend had recommended it and she was right. Downstairs a lovely museum with a beautiful Bellini. We were in off season and had the museum to ourselves and were able to sit - alone - with the painting and just savor it. Upstairs... More

Staying in Castello

Neighborhood Profile
Castello
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighborhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.
