Ca'Rezzonico lies of the Grand Canal and access is very easy from the water bus landing stage of the same name. The palazzo was designed by Baldassare Longhena in 1667 for the Bon family. It is now the Museo dei Settecento Veneziano or Museum of 18th Century Venice and was well restored in 2001.
The Museum (just as much an Art Gallery as a Museum) is a showcase to art, architecture, furniture and general life in Venice at the time that the great trading Republic was beginning its decline. It contains fine works by Tiepolo and many other Venetian artists of the time arranged over several floors.
On the ground floor there is a useful and reasonably priced (for Venice) cafe and a bookshop
