Galleria Giorgio Franchetti alla Ca' d'Oro, Venice
(4/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
Admire the historical grandeur of Venice combined with an impressive collection of artwork at Galleria Giorgio Franchetti alla Ca' d'Oro. The magnificent Gothic palace was built in the 15th century as home to the influential Contarini family. It remained in private hands until the early 20th century, when its last owner, an avid art collector named Giorgio Franchetti, transferred it to the Italian state. A great architectural monument, the palace still houses Franchetti's collection, which includes the works of artists such as Titian, Jan van Eyck, and Anthony van Dyck. You'll find guided tours of the palace in different languages both for groups and individual visitors, but you'll want to book them in advance. Put Galleria Giorgio Franchetti alla Ca' d'Oro on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Venice itinerary builder.

  • This Palace is very beautiful and relatively large, lots of things to see. The price is not given as many thing in Venice, but worth a visit

  • Had always wanted to see this famous building and its exhibits. But: - Hard to find - Expensive admission - Frequent closure of exhibits (whole 2nd floor was closed the day we were there) Just enjoy t...  more »
  • By using the noble residence and exhibited contemporary art. Didn't not like Venice exhibition. Recommend a cafe overlooking the Grand Canal, on the first floor. Admission fee required, street price at the cafe. And fewer people recommended.

  • Water flooded every morning. Amazing.
  • Its very good, if you like art/painting. I like history but there was not much in it apart from a very old hand drawn map of venice. The view is good though from higher floors. But it is definitely not worth the ticket price. (6 Euro)
  • Beautiful building. You'll easily be able to spot it when passing through the grand canal.
  • Interesting and worth visiting!
  • Small art collection in a wonderful building
