Galleria Giorgio Franchetti alla Ca' d'Oro, Venice

(4/5 based on 420+ 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.

  • Only passed this beautiful building from the water, it is a real feel of the past. Will give it a proper visit next time!  more »
  • Not visible along the Grand Canal is built for the most beautiful building of the boat ride, from falling into the river. Beautiful lace arch 1F, 2F, 3F and masonry went up and so on.

  • Stay for the fourth time in Venice, we knew the splendid architecture of the Ca d'Oro view of the Grand Canal but decided this time to visit the Interior. We have alas! could not access all of the Palace and the Museum housing the remarkable collection Franchetti but only on the first floor. Complete the opening (in March) was not every day (preparation of exhibitions, works...) The price of admission 8.50 remained unchanged. Prices relatively high, but offset by the pleasure to discover the rich floor and Gallery overlooking the Grand Canal... and the remarkable in Venice to be quiet to admire the works (magnificent bronzes, among others).

  • 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
