  • We were fortunate to find some displays of great appeal but it is not always the case. This palazzo is down the Venice equivalent of a side alley (a narrow quiet canal) and you feel the contrast betwe...  more »
  • The imposing building, belonged built by one of the richest families of Venice, not too close to the paths of tourists, so it is difficult to have happened by chance. You have to go in the streets around Santa Maria Formosa and find the small calle where you find the entrance. But the visit reward of all the effort of research, the Palace is one of the most beautiful areas of the city, the majestic rooms and importance of art collections are worth the trip to Venice. A considerable part of the sculptures of Grimani's collection has gone to enriching the archaeological museum, the Palace, much decayed, was restored in recent years. There are also temporary exhibitions and classical concerts are included in the ticket price. Yet, it is very little known and frequented, a pity.

  • The visit worth every anguish in the city of tourism more aggressive the rarefied silence and meditation.

  • 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.
