Ca' Rezzonico, Venice
(4.4/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
After years of renovations and changing ownership, Ca' Rezzonico> became a public museum in 1936. A Venetian patrician family named Bon commissioned the palazzo, though they never saw it completed. The skeleton of the unfinished palazzo was bought by Giambattista Rezzonico, who wrapped up the project and gave the interior the opulent decor you see today. The frescoes painted on the state room ceilings are the best-preserved in all of Venice. American songwriter Cole Porter partied underneath these same frescoes when he rented the palazzo for $4,000 a month in the 1920s. In 1935, the attraction was handed over to the city and became a venue for displaying 18th-century art among the sumptuous furnishings.

  • CA ' Rezzonico is a beautiful Venetian Palace on the Grand Canal. It can be reached easily by boat, view the adjacent station. It's always a pleasure to wander through the various rooms and salons, retracing the history of Venetian nobles.
