  • Nice decorations and ceiling paintings remain in the House of Lords or frescoed walls and pillars and stairs. Now look at fresh and moving. Statue that hangs from a dome, especially room, room green of trees and birds painted on the ceiling, each in different fireplace tile designs were impressive.

  • I had seen images of one of the rooms of this palazzo-turned-museum, before my visit, and knew I wanted to see it in person. The museum was exceptionally empty while I was there -- maybe 10 other atte...  more »
  • Just after facing a human tide in the busy streets of the Carnival, we agreed a moment of magic. This place is just beautiful and so quiet... We were alone, surprising because this Palace is a real treat for the eyes. I paid €5, free for my 12 year old son. The visit is short, about 20 minutes. Remember to take a brochure in french available at the top of the grand staircase. It's beautiful. It is a must-see.

  • The palace is very nice, but the State Museum that occupies its beautiful rooms is very neglected. A bureaucratic museum that would need a better management and a little Tender, Care and Love.
  • Beautiful palazzo but rude staff and sparse information (for example that the Bosch painting was not present).
  • Interesting building, but the paintings were all on loan to other galleries. Check to see that what you aim to see is actually present.
  • Great to visit as a bonus after the academia. The visit is definitely faster but it brings a great perspective on how palazzos could be in their original states.
  • A good place to see some great paintings and statues surrounding the history of Venice. It was over very quickly, however.
