Ca' Rezzonico, Venice

4.5
#3 of 88 in Museums in Venice
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. A visit to Ca' Rezzonico represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Venice driving holiday planning website to plot your vacation.

  • Another Museum in another palace, and still great! A beautiful building housing some fabulous artworks. Especially enjoyed the drawings that were on display, and not forgetting the fine examples of...  more »
  • Visited as part of the city pass. Would recommend for a morning as it gives an interesting look into the way a venetian merchant family would have lived. Benches in the garden make a good lunch spot.  more »
  • It is like a smaller version of the Doge, good collection of arts in a well preserved historic palace.  more »

  • This stunning museum was the palace of one of Venice’s rich families. It has so many beautiful rooms and showcases art and architecture. It’s included in the city pass and it’s right on the grand canal.
  • This wonderful museum within the palace is a joy to visit. It has several rooms, most with a bench for sitting to enjoy the room and artwork. Each room has a descriptive card (in many languages). It has never been crowded when we have visited. It is filled with treasures of furniture, paintings, China, sculptures, and Fresco's.
  • Pretty great museum! Took lots of pics, but not going to post it bc of the copyrights. But damn it the 3rd floor is closed so no reason:( They don't even know if it's temporary closed or what
  • It is one of the most beautiful places I visited in Venice. Also, one with the most beautiful paintings I saw, with non-religious themes. They were upgrading the lights which definitely will help to appreciate more the pieces of art. But I will have to go back and spend more time here.
  • Very cool unique furniture pieces, incredible works of art, rabbits, flowers all from cut marble as a tabletop.
