We went to this place as it was on the Unica Venezia museum pass but not sure we would have gone if we had to pay for this. It is a bit rustic compared to other palazzos that are included on the pass

Despite not knowing anything about Carlo, we found this strange but welcoming home thoroughly enjoyable. If you enter with no expectations, a museum pass and good, lighthearted company- you can’t go wrong.

This small museum will not take you very long to complete unless you have an interest in the puppetry work of Carlo Goldoni. It is on the opposite side of the canal to the major sites and it is a little tricky to find with...More

nothing really to see. Staff not interested in giving any insights. In a city full of landmarks (and public museums worth a visit) this place rewards only a visit when you already have your museum pass and stumble over it.

We had an hour to spare before leaving Venice, so popped into this museum. There wasn't a great deal to see, but what there was was interesting enough and the entrance fee wasn't expensive (reduction for seniors).

This is a small museum that contains little of interest. I've seen a Goldoni play, but that's as far as my acquaintance with his works goes, so perhaps I am not the target audience. However, since I was passing I thought I would pop in....More

OK, this is one of the 9 houses Carlo Goldoni lived during this stay in Venice but yet you have the amazing original features welcoming you right from the entrance door. Not many exhibits inside but you have some representative of his era together with...More

🏠It's a typical Venetian small palace with a nice court inside, where Goldoni spent a few years of his early life. In the basement there are some basic information about Carlo Goldoni, mainly his biography, while on the first floor you can see a short...More

San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six
sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest
neighborhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the
markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San
