I had my breath taken away by this beautiful building. It is easily found, to begin with, as it is right by the Ca' Rezzonico waterbus stop on Route 1. From the stop, you turn right, over a small bridge and the entrance is on your left. On the day we went, the little wooden bridge was closed and we had to walk round a 'block' This was an advantage, however, as we saw shops and buildings we would otherwise not have gone near.

The staff were courteous and well informed, and every part of the building was well sign-posted, although the lift was out of service. This could be a huge disadvantage if you can't make the stairs, as there are three floors. However, the climb was well worth the effort and the rooms are well displayed and well looked after. A good shop where you can buy souveniers and a range of material about Ca' Rezzonico is on the ground floor. After a relatively recent change in the law, it is now possible to take photographs in this type of building as long as flash is not used.

We had a snack lunch at the small cafe on the ground floor, which was manned by a very helpful man who really knew his trade. The food was reasonably priced and good. We sat at a table on the waterside and took in the sights and sounds whilst we ate. Would go back in a heartbeat.

“what a great Palazzo”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Great Palazzo, overlooking the grand canal, with a magnificent Baroque Façade.
They began building in the mid 17s', and it was finished in 1758. At this Palace, lived the nephew of Pope Clement XIII, from the Rezzonico family of Padua.
Now days it’s a museum of "Venetian life at the 18th century".
In order to preserve the treasures of other palaces, the Venetian council moved many wall and ceiling paintings. Some rooms are in Chinese style, with wallpaper, furniture, vases and sculptures.
Till the end of November 2014, you will be able to see 343 porcelain objects of art and miniatures, from the collection of Marino Nani Mocenigo on display. It is a most enjoyable museum and highly recommended, especially for the art decoration lovers.

“Quietly Magnificent treasure”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

Felt like a world away from the hustle and bustle, a gorgeous time machine back the opulence of venice past. Much nicer than simply seeing items laid out in a museum! Beautiful rooms and fantastic furnishings, with an astonishing must see Murano chandelier and lovely views over the canal. Stay after in the area for some fantastic food and enjoy the neighbourhood over the river that has far fewer tourists!

“Not what it is sold as”
Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

Everywhere you read about his place it is sold as a glimpse of life in an old Palazzo. However, it's really more of a museum of art and crafts. In all he rooms he information is all about the paintings and furniture, nowhere does it say what any of the rooms were actually used for. How would life have really been there? How many servants? Where did they live, etc. it is beautiful, but after visiting a few museums around here we are a bit classical art overloaded.

“A real chance to see a Palazzo”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

Visitors to Venice rarely get to see the texture and beauty of life in a real palazzo. They are still largely closed to outsiders. This is your chance. An intriguing and beautiful look at how the rich folk alkong the Grand Canal furnished there wonderful palaces. A must see!
