What more could you want? It's all rolled into one at this excellent site. An open air garden court in the center of the palace was a place for quiet contemplation and getting away for a few moments. Art gallery gift shops are my favorites and this one is small & manageable. My adult
son and I decided we needed a sit and treat and did we luck out here! A tented garden retreat
served one of the best cups of coffee I have ever had. Son & I split a chocolate delight that was
appropriately gooey and rich which was the perfect compliment to our coffee(Adult daughter had
a tarry in the palace courtyard and missed out. Read and weep, darling!.) And the story of this
palace and her art collection is very interesting. There's way too much stuff, of course, so stop
when you get over-filled and enjoy the venetian escape from Boston..
