This is a restored Venetian canal palace and the only opportunity we found to actually get inside one of those magnificent buildings you see along the Grand Canal. It has been restored and filled with both art and furniture. You get the vision of how life would have been among the rich in Venice. Quite spectacular!

Decided to visit here as I wanted to see inside a palazzo and had read about the ballroom decorated in the Trompe L'Oeil style. This is in fact the first room you go in after the entrance, and it is spectacular! Every wall painted from top to bottom and it looks 3D, you feel you have to go up and... More

Decided to give Peg. Gig. A miss as reviews and photos of exhibits were a little one dimensional. However Ca' Rezzonica is not to be missed on any account- the building is a fabulous restoration, not of the original palazzo but is a compendium of architectural pieces collected and donated from various buildings woven into a whole making the structure...

Ca' Rezzonico was a great way to end our trip to Venice. Interesting first floor, but then amazing multiple floors of art including a few Canalettos

The visit was close to my hotel near Accademia and very enjoyable. The audio guide is a bit too detailed, but who can complain. Going room by room was fascinating particular in relation to the furniture and paintings. The galleries on the 3rd floor were not so interesting to be very honest.

Plenty to see to revive the most jaded artistic palate! Great location in a lovely part of Venice, and so many delights to keep you there for hours.

This is one your few chances to see inside a Venetian Palazzo. The interior has been restored and it a chance to see what living in one of these gorgeous homes would have been like. There are descriptions in most rooms that tell you about the paintings and the furniture as well as the rooms itself that are most helpful.... More

Ca'Rezzonico is located on the Grand Canal in the Dorsoduro section of Venice and has a Vaporetto stop almost at its front door. This is the last palace designed by Longhena and is beautifully restored and filled with a remarkable collection of 18th century artwork and furnishings. Look for the canvases by Tiepolo, , Longhi, Cannaletto and Guardi. If you... More

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighborhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbors exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
