  • We switched to calle Grimani and we visited this beautiful Palace. Very interesting for its architecture and the ceilings. Shame you're missing directions. it would be an attraction for tourists. Maybe a few because there were four of us visitors

  • 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.
  • Interesting building, but the paintings were all on loan to other galleries. Check to see that what you aim to see is actually present.
  • It was terrible :)
  • A big surprise. A continuous change of perspective.
