Galleria Giorgio Franchetti alla Ca' d'Oro, Venice

4.1
#8 of 53 in Museums in Venice
Art Museum Architectural Building
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.

  • Ca' d'Oro is an elaborately ornate building with a very long history. It was built a few centuries ago and in the process changed ownership several times. It now is a state museum. It is probably wort...  more »
  • Known for its façade overlooking the Grand Canal, the building is certainly worth a visit to admire the restoration work done. Interesting works of the Franchetti Gallery and the exhibition on Oriental rugs and their timing through painting.

  • Amazing house and gallery! Loved the exposition so much! Also first Sunday of the month is free...
  • Very nice palace, from the corner of the palace walk to the canal and take the gondola that brings you from one side to the other of the canal, cheap and nice experience
  • The courtyard was great and the views on the grand canal. But the inside was a little bit disappointing
  • 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)
  • Water flooded every morning. Amazing.

Where to stay in Venice

Save money and avoid tourist crowds by booking your accommodation outside the historical center of Venice. Central Venice is full of picturesque canals and narrow lanes, but it is also extremely noisy and hectic throughout the day and late into the night. You can explore the ancient city's charms at your own pace by staying at a comfortable B&B or small hotel located in the city's residential suburbs. To stay close to the finest beaches and restaurants, check into a hotel on the island of Lido, the city's famous seaside resort.
