Museo Correr is situated in the ex-Royal Palace in Piazza San Marco and includes the Napoleonic Wing and the Procuratie Nuove. It was created out of the art collection which Teodoro Correr left to the city in 1830 and offers various tours: from the neoclassical rooms, with sculptures by Antonio Canova, to historical collections on the city’s institutions, urban history and daily life. The picture gallery, one of the most fascinating collections of Venetian painting from its origins to the early 16th century, includes works by Lorenzo Veneziano, the Bellini family, Carpaccio, Cosmè Tura, Antonello da Messina and Lorenzo Lotto, displayed in an interesting layout by Carlo Scarpa.

One walks through the Austrian royal family rooms recalling the history. That's interesting but the best part is the roman and greek archeological collection- from sculptures to coins and reliefs. We wish we could spend more time there.

This museum has available a combined ticket with the Doge's Palace across Piazza San Marco. If you are over 65, tell them and save €7 per ticket for the combo. The museum is wonderful. The royal apartments alone are worth the price of admission. There are wonderful old statues and paintings. Great combo to do on a rainy day with... More

We had read that the cafe at the Correr Museum was elegant, with great views. Maybe...we waited a short time and then grabbed a table by a window. We thought great, seated, now we can order coffee - no. The harassed waitress walked past our table many times. We told her we would like to order and we're told, 'so... More

This is a wonderful part of Venice to tour. The plaza has so much to offer; the wonderful church, museums, craft markets, and great food. So much for the family to see and enjoyed during the day and again at night. Don't forget the wonderful waterfront views too. Bring your camera.

If you are a little fan of Sissi and of Italian art (paintings and sculpures) this an accessible museum (museo) for you. It is not too big and even without a guide it can be pleasant.

We went here after a guided tour in the crowded Doge Palace. Found it mych more varied and informative, it was easier to read about the rooms and get an impression. Liked that it was connected with the other two museums (archiological and library).

This museum has a magnificent,under publicized collection of 12th century onward Venetian-Byzantine art.I have seen nothing like it in the States at least 14 galleries of masterpieces. The cafe offers a variety of drinks and snacks at prices that are a bargain compared to what is on offer on St.Mark's Square. And you may get a table that gives you... More

On San Marco square there are many things you'd place above this place to choose to visit however it's worth it. A surprising little museum with a good selection of history and interesting pieces. It's also a lovely building with a grand room that reminded us of beauty and the beast ballroom. A lot of Venice history is in the... More

This museum is located in a magnificent building and does make some effort to cater to a range of international visitors and their various languages. But despite advertising to the contrary it does a poor job of telling the story of Venice. In fact we left not really well enlightened in this regard at all. Some of the more interesting... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
