  • Worth seeing, a wonderful discovery. Situated near campo Santa Maria Formosa, one can see the entrance to ruga Giuffa overlooking the courtyard. It is not a traditional Museum, has very few paintings. The Museum is the building itself, with its sixteenth-century decorations and its history linked to one of the most important families of the Venetian nobility. I recommend it

  • We bought a ticket at the Ca d'Oro coupled with this one without knowing or almost what awaited us there! and what a nice surprise! Besides the Palace was heated which was nice in the winter. Certainly it is virtually empty of furniture... but it leaves us free to admire even more the walls and ceilings. A special mention for the room with the opening to the tribune called sky that would accommodate more than 130 statues.

  • If the Ca' d'Oro is the most beautiful Palace outside of Venice, the Palazzo Grimani has one of the most beautiful interiors that can be visited. The now empty Antiquarium (with one exception) is of ineffable beauty. It's free the first Sunday of the month!

  • Experience the feeling of old Venice. A lot of imagination is needed. Some great ceilings
  • I recommend everyone to visit this Palace to the beautiful sixteenth-century decorations. A wonderful home "alla romana" of a noble Venetian family.
