Ca’ Pesaro, the most important baroque palace in the city, designed by Baldassare Longhena, has been the seat of Venice City Council’s collection of Modern Art since 1902. The collection was created in 1897 on occasion of the city’s second Art Biennale. The focus of the museum’s collections consists of works that won prizes or were acquired in the early decades of the Biennale. These include famous masterpieces, such as Klimt’s Judith II (Salomè, 1909) and Chagall’s Rabbi of Vitebsk (1922). One of the museum’s strengths is its vast collection of sculptures, including works in wax by Medardo Rosso, donated to the museum by the artist in 1914. Further acquisitions and bequests have endowed the museum with notable works, from Kandinsky to Klee, Matisse to Moore, as well as a rich selection of works by Italian artists and an important cabinet of graphic art. After restoration works in 2002, the exhibition area has been extended further to the second floor. The Oriental Art Museum, on the third floor, which can be visited with the same ticket.

Very interesting exhibition. 82 live portraits using the same chair, all with an explanation of how the sitters fit into David Hockney's life. Extraordinary talent. Highly recommended.

Really nice cafe overlooking the Grand Canal with delicious paninis. The art gallery itself isn't very large although is well presented. Nice enough but worth going for the cafe rather than the art..

Literally my breath was taken away when I saw my first Klimt in this gallery. Rodin's The Thinker is also there along with other massive and interesting sculptural works. One to definitely visit and it's included in the museum pass attractions.

This is the most important modern art museum in Venice and in the whole region. Works are displayed in a 17th century palace which would be worth a visit just by itself.

San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six
sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest
neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the
markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San
