We took the "traghetto" from just outside the fish market to Ca' d'Oro, an impressive late Gothic palace. Baron Giorgio Franchetti who took on the building in a poor state of repair, completed extensive renovations so he had somewhere to house his art collection. In...More

I was happier with my experience at Ca' d'Oro than the Gallerie Accademia actually. The gallery at Ca' d'Oro is much more diverse. If you are looking for something that is not overwhelmed with other tourists, go to this gallery. We were pleasantly surprised that...More

We were expecting rather more of a palazzo feel about the place, but it seemed a bit of a jumble of things the owner had collected. The audio guide was difficult to follow, and the Italian lady speaking English on it spoke too fast.

The magical setting of the Ca' d'Oro, one of the most beautiful palaces in Venice, is home to an extremely eclectic collection of paintings, sculptures, marble and bronze reliefs, fragments of frescoes and tapestries.

I spent a rainy afternoon here and it was without doubt one of the highlights of my month in Venice. The building is superb and beautifully maintained, the sculptures and paintings in the upstairs galleries are museum quality. There are wonderful views of the fish...More

Heading in the direction of the Ca'd'Oro vaporetta stop to visit a modern art museum we stumbled upon a beautiful sun soaked courtyard. We soon realised the courtyard belonged to the Ca'd'Oro (golden house) Franchetti Gallery. We were lured in. The building itself was built...More
