  • This renaissance style palace became museum in 2015 thus it isn't as popular as the others in Venice but it's truly worth to visit. The decorated ceiling is breathtaking and you can have it to yoursel...  more »
  • It cost Euros 5 each for us to go into this 'palace' and they are basically empty rooms in quite a bad state of repair. The notes you are given to explain the appropriately 14/15 rooms reveal that all...  more »
  • Beautiful stucchi and decorated ceilings. Imposing palace housing a few statues. Easy to visit thanks to extended opening hours and uncrowded rooms  more »

  • Nothing in the so called museum. Google claims people spend up to 2 hours here, me and the other half saw everything in 13 minutes. One floor, the rest of the building is closed off. Most of the rooms are empty, the ones with pieces in have one or two small pieces, none of which have title placards or any information. Overall not worth the price of entry
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Interesting building, but the paintings were all on loan to other galleries. Check to see that what you aim to see is actually present.
  • Beautiful palazzo but rude staff and sparse information (for example that the Bosch painting was not present).
