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.
