  • Newly restored Grimani Palace is must-see for its airy opulence. Testimony of troubleful and satin times. From a narrow calle you enter a large and bright palace, restored with cleanliness but sometimes a little too "new"

  • Currently housing 5 century-old sculptures easy to get to neighborhood away from all the crowds
  • It's a great looking renaissance courtyard, and a great museum experience! Hidden in one of the nicest Venetian neighborhoods!
  • Beautiful Palazzo. Worth the visit. The temporary exhibition we were there last time was Helene Frankenthaler.
  • We was there on Culture's Week, that's way the visit was free. Normally, the ticket cost 5 euro. If you're short of cash, it's not a priority. It's a nice place, but is small. You can finish the visit in half an hour, maybe.
  • Be aware. Place is under renovation. Some rooms are not avaible. Beautiful paintings in the ceiling. There should be renovation discount on tricket price.
