Inspirock Rating:
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.

  • Very kind and helpful staff. Was cosy with nice bathrooms and good and quiet area for sleeping. Rarely heard the other people in the 4 nights we were there. Rooms were clean and breakfast was adequate. Loved the juice and fresh fruit. Recommend it, good area, good value.
  • Beautiful, well laid out, very friendly staff and an interesting collection of art and items. The garden is pretty. Also, you get a chance to get away (a little) from the hectic crowds of St. Marks.
  • Great Palace! Painting are greatly exhibited in this well preserved classical venetian palace. You can do the visit with or without audioguide as there as some times informations in the rooms.
  • beautiful time machine inside and out. well kept up place. fantastic views out on all 4 sides. must visit.
  • Step into another world. There are so many good reasons to visit the Ca’ Rezzonico (the vast and sumptuously decorated ballroom, paintings by Canaletto, Guardi and Longhi, charming frescoes by Giandomenico Tiepolo), but perhaps the best reason is the chance to experience how a tiny and fabulously rich fragment of Venetian society once lived.
