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.

  • A splendid palace dedicated to the eighteenth century: the façade by Longhena is only visible from the Canal; the Museum is uncrowded (better), with attached bookshop and paid audio guide. Awesome beauty not only for specialists: among the many works of art were impressed upon the wooden sculptures by Brustolon and frescoes by G.D. Tiepolo: the new world and the series of Pulcinella. I recommend it to everyone.

  • 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 .
