Owner description: Immerse yourself in Venice's Age of Decadence with a visit to this lavish palace of the Venetian aristocracy Rezzonico, which houses an unsurpassed collection of eighteenth-century Venetian art.
Reviewed February 6, 2014

I have visited Ca Rezzonico a few years ago in the heat of a stifling summer's day and all I could think about was getting out. But on a cold wet January day, a visit there was wonderful starting on the 3rd floor and working down. Ask to be shown to the lift if you have dodgy knees like mine. Apparently the two Canaletto paintings are the only remaining ones on view in Venice. I suspect that younger children my be bored stiff by a visit, but if you are interested in art and architecture take the no 1 Vaporetti to the Ca Rezzonico and get off right outside the building.

The first floor show's many rooms as thy wood have been n the 17th century. Above is an art museum exhibiting varying qualities of pictures. If you intend going to the Dodge's Palace then it will be worth purchasing a museum pass for 24 euro, it includes around 10 museums.

Take your time, don't plan too little time for your visit! This beautiful palace is a complex museum of paintings, furniture, and of itself. It accomodates three galleries: the Museo del Settecento Veneziano (the main part with staircase, big hall, frescos...) and two formerly private galleries, one of which you will access from the courtyard, the other and more important one (Pinacoteca Egidio Martini) is located on the last floor. Be sure not to miss it! In this gallery you can find paintings by great Venetian masters but also by not very known painters like Antonio Guardi (brother of the famous Francesco). Cristo doloroso by Ribera is splendid.

The palace courtyard and garden are accessible for free. The bistro is not very interesting (it's the same company as in Museo Correr where the caffeteria at least has a wonderful location) but there are some tables and chairs on the terrace outside the courtyard with a nice view of Canal Grande.

There are plenty of good reasons to visit the Ca'Rezzonico. There are paintings by Longhi, Canaletto and Guardi, frescoes by Giamdomenico Tiepolo, intricately carved wooden furniture by Brustolon, a magnificent ballroom, an ancient pharmacy. It was also home to the man who became Pope Clement XIII and the English poet, Robert Browning, lived (albeit very briefly) and died there.

But, for me, the main reason for visiting the palace is that it provides a fascinating insight into the long-vanished world of 18th century Venetian high society.

This magnificent palace, located on the Grand Canal at the intersection of the Rio di San Barnaba, was designed by, Baldassare Longhena for the aristocratic Bon family in1649. The museum was very quiet & peaceful when we were there … a welcome relief from the crowds in Venice and it contains some very worthwhile exhibits.
We enjoyed our time leisurely browsing the collections in near solitude. Definitely worth a visit, especially if you have previously visited Venice and seen the more frequently recommended sites.
1st floor – 11 rooms with gorgeous frescoed ceilings, 18th century furniture, sculptures & paintings. I found the Ballroom the “highlight” on this floor.
2nd floor – don’t miss the alcove & adjoining rooms in which an 18th century bedchamber has been reproduced complete with dressing-rooms, wardrobe-room and boudoir. Also, the furniture in the Green Lacquer Room is amazing.
3rd floor – contains 3 rooms of a very interesting old pharmacy (the Farmacia Ai do San Marchi, which, until 1908, was located in Campo San Stin in Venice, in the building on the corner of Calle Donà.)
