On the plus side, the building in itself is worth a visit (don't miss the toilets upstairs for a fantastic view over the canal); they seem to be willing to be take risks... read more

Usually I really enjoy modern art, but the main exhibition was Martial Raysse, which I did not like at all, and everything else was in a similar style. I could hardly find anything I could connect to. I recommend you find out about the current exhibitions before you decide to visit (which is generally a good advice). The service was... More

On the plus side, the building in itself is worth a visit (don't miss the toilets upstairs for a fantastic view over the canal); they seem to be willing to be take risks dedicating the whole space to an artist that is not "mass market" (Martial Raysse); and why not say it, so few visitors is a relief in a...

Kering eyewear chose this wonderful place as a Launchpad to their 2016 collection and what a success it was. We had excellent canapés, tiramisu and lots of prosecco of course. The staff were so polite and ultra-attentive.

Both this restored palace and the Punta della Dogana are part of the Pinault museums (and you can purchase combined ticket for both at a reduced price). The building's interiors are beautiful, and the current exhibition devoted to the famous pop art master Martial Raysse is very worthwhile.

This is such a waste of a great palazzo, it is a beautifully restored building full of character and history but devoid of great exhibitions, why?! Come on....

We always stop to visit the unusual exhibit of modern art at the Palazzo Grassi. I am always fascinated and moved by the exhibits. They did not have the hand held recorders this visit which I missed.

Beautiful location for a beautiful building, hosting a very interesting exhibition of Modern Art. We advise to end the visit at the cafe, where you can get healthy food for a good price. If you like Arts, you should go there.

Place is wonderful and masterpieces are greatly enhanced. One annoying point with children: the male guardians (male only) are over-protective and even disrespectful to the visitors and the quietness of the palazzio. Almost between you and the art you try to appreciate. To improve or to close to children.

Earlier in the day we went to their sister museum , Punta della Dogana and since the tx was good for this also we made a point to visit. Glad we did. The art probably isnt for everyone but its our style. Even if we didnt like or even get a piece, it got us talking and that's the point... More

Some very interesting art on display by a French artist, some clearly Warhol-inspired and lots of overtly political and feminist pieces.however, the majestic. Building is the star. Lovely cafe too.

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
