Ca' Rezzonico, Venice
(4.4/5 based on 1,100+ 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. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Venice holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Ca' Rezzonico and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • A fantastic palace & museum. The palace on the first floor is wonderful. The collections of art on the next two levels are also incredible in their own right. Definitely pace yourself as there is a lot to see.
  • One of the many beautiful palaces at the Grand Cannal. Typical Venetian architecture.
  • Pretty interesting place. Provides lots of information. Great for an afternoon of exploring!
  • Very good museum. Definitely a must if you stay in Venice for more than a few days .
  • It's a beautiful palace on the canal worth visiting.
