Galleria Giorgio Franchetti alla Ca' d'Oro, Venice

(440+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building Castle
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.

  • 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.
