  • Nice Museum, included in the museum pass, which has an interesting journey on perfume where you can smell, see, understand the history of fragrances maid for the rest is a beautiful Palace, Nice.

  • The criticism first of all: because a major exhibition to perfume and perfume bottles has dominated at the moment, only a few dresses and historical costumes were. The exhibits were all pretty to look at, but not necessarily overly exciting. The pretty rooms of the Palazzo, where you can track as it is earlier than venecian nobleman lived are but very worthwhile. For the Setup and decoration full score, the exhibition itself is a good average.

  • Very disappointing. Poorly curated, with minimal information in any language and falsely advertised as a textile museum when it is really a very small interiors and perfume museum. Certainly not worth eight euros.
  • It is a nice museum if you are into perfumes. It was quite small. And I am sure a lot of people that allready know alot about scents can find it boring. The building is really nice. No guides. You are able to buy perfumes from the Venatian brand The Merchant of Venice. I would recomment visiting the flagship store also in Venice. Museum staff was grumpy.
  • Nice museum with focus on Venetian costumes and perfume making. If nearby you may want to visit.
  • This museum gives a good sense of the interior of a Venetian palazzo in the 18th century. There was furniture, period glass and some glorious chandeliers on display. There was also space devoted to the perfume industry in Venice during its heyday as a merchant powerhouse. There were examples of raw ingredients, perfume making equipment, trade routes for sourcing ingredients and a wonderful collection of perfume bottles spanning thousands of years. I would have liked to see more examples of historical textiles and costumes. There are a number of mannequins in period costume and a great collection of 18th century vests but these just left me wanting more. I had hoped for historic Carnival masks and clothing. The museum was quiet, easily reached from the S. Stae vaporetto stop and also made it convenient to visit San Stae cathedral.
  • Fun Palazzo with an interesting museum about the perfume industry of Venezia. Quiet and pleasant. Takes about 40-50 minutes to see it all.

Where to stay in Venice

Save money and avoid tourist crowds by booking your accommodation outside the historical center of Venice. Central Venice is full of picturesque canals and narrow lanes, but it is also extremely noisy and hectic throughout the day and late into the night. You can explore the ancient city's charms at your own pace by staying at a comfortable B&B or small hotel located in the city's residential suburbs. To stay close to the finest beaches and restaurants, check into a hotel on the island of Lido, the city's famous seaside resort.
