The is the best go-to museum if you only have a chance to go to one. The art on the walls throughout is extraordinarily varied with some things of great beauty and very occasional lapses in taste. But you also get a chance to see the Grand Canal form within a Palazzo and to get a feel for what life... More

I am giving this a 3 star only because I am not a art history buff and I had no idea what I was looking at. There were info cards but it would have been better if I got an audio guide or been in a tour. The grand ball room is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!

Fabulous museum of the eighteenth century. Stroll through palatial rooms and marvel at the drawings in the library.

Almost worth visiting for its fascinating history alone, the palazzo today houses a great collection of 18th century art and furniture rescued from other palazzo. Construction of the palazzo started in 1649 by Filippo Bon to designs of Baldassarre Longhena. Bon, but stopped when Boni became insolvent and the unfinished palazzo was sold to Giambattista Rezzonico who employed the architect... More

The Vientiane version of an England's National Trust property: it has some of everything! Beautiful architecture, frescoes, furniture, paintings, ornaments, lights and views. It is beautiful and at €10 pp not a bad deal!

This is one of the few palaces on the Canal Grande that can be visited. It shows how the Venetian nobility was living in the 18th century. There are frescoed rooms, the ballroom from Ca' Rezzonico, as well as paintings/ frescoes and furniture brought from other Venetian palaces. Unfortunately the original furniture of the palace has not been preserved, but... More

Sumptuous rooms full of art work of the period gives you a reasonable impression of the way a palazzo would have looked in its heyday. I was lucky enough to attend 2 promenade performances during Carnevale.

After visiting the Peggy Guggenheim and the Accademia (my favorite ) we searched for Ca' Rezzonico. We knew we were near it, and got directions from several people, but kept getting lost as it is off the beaten path. It was worth it once we found it. There were very few visitors on the afternoon in October when we went.... More

Our guide took us through this stunning palazzo and explained what life was like for the Venetian nobility in the 18th century. Learned about the history of the building along with all the artwork and artists featured within.

Very nice building giving an idea of the 18th century life organization. Also some paintings on the 1st floor give vivid images of the life then. Beware that there are different levels, you may miss them if you do not pat attention. The pinacoteca at the last level presents various works for the ones interested.

Thank Rudolf W

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighbourhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
