    Lovely attraction with 1 massive room to check out. Has an excellent ceiling and wall panels. Can see in less than an hour. Nice gift shop and has a restroom.

    Fabulous area with lots of lovely restaurants. It’s busy as in every place in Venice but we found a quiet restaurant for dinner with a courtyard. Unfortunately I can’t remember the name of the place

    We revisited this beautiful church on our latest trip to Venice and again enjoyed the lovely views of Venice and the surrounding lagoon. Even in peak summer, there were few people visiting San Giorgio Maggiore, and we got to linger over the modern art exhibit in the church and take the elevator to the top of the campanile without a line.

    I wish I had more time to explore one of Venice’s most beautiful neighbourhoods. I really recommend visiting as it is as beautiful as San Marco but with less crowds

    We had never been to an opera and I figured if we were gonna go, it was going to be in Italy. Musica a Palazzo was wonderful about emailing with us to set up the reservation and letting us know what we needed to be prepared ahead of time. The opera was a highlight of our trip abroad! The talent was wonderful and the interaction with the audience fun and engaging. We had a great time and the facility was beautiful! Highly recommend spending an evening in Venice taking advantage of this.

    I had a great experience I did not buy cameo but I did buy a 18K gold chain and charm the service was great and the knowledge he had made me feel very comfortable to do business with. I did a lot of research for a gold chain , Even though he does not advertise in gold his specialty is cameo he still had chains for me to buy. I would recommend him to anyone looking for any piece of jewlery.

    This is an absolute must-see when in Venice, right up there with St. Mark's. Absolutely beautiful 18th century palace, and there's an ACTV stop right next to it, so it's easy to cross the canal to visit. Lots of great English info in the many rooms. Would recommend over Ca d'Oro, Fenice, and possibly even the Doge's Palace.

    Surprised at how quiet this place was - I even had the chapel entirely to myself for at least ten minutes. It is very beautiful and the entrance fee is reasonable

    A little treasure trove. I loved my visit to Libreria Aqua Alta. I love books, and I love history - it's perfect. Yes, it's chaotic, but if you expect it to be you won't be surprised. Piles of books everywhere - fabulous!

    A very important place to both Venetian and Jewish history. I did not visit the museum, but it is interesting to walk around and there are a few signs

    It is an interesting structure for sure with an outside staircase. It is the history surrounding the building which was the house of a noble family in Venice in the 15th century. The architecture is beautiful. It’s hard to find unless you know what you are looking for and does only require a quick stop to admire it from the outside as I have read there isn’t much to see inside. You can climb up for a fee but we were short of time and energy

    It’s a good museum and is only 10€ to enter on the door, don’t fall into the tourist traps of buying tickets online. The aquarium was closed however the sea exhibit was very good. The best room was the animals which were on the walls and their fur. Small muesum and isnt really travel friendly unless u want to spend more money

    To enter the main church is free, but you can pay an extra 3.50 euros per person to see the flooded crypt and a couple other rooms. I thought this was well worth doing, and was glad that we did.
