Ca' Rezzonico, Venice

4.5
#3 of 84 in Museums in Venice
After years of renovations and changing ownership, Ca' Rezzonico> became a public museum in 1936. A Venetian patrician family named Bon commissioned the palazzo, though they never saw it completed. The skeleton of the unfinished palazzo was bought by Giambattista Rezzonico, who wrapped up the project and gave the interior the opulent decor you see today. The frescoes painted on the state room ceilings are the best-preserved in all of Venice. American songwriter Cole Porter partied underneath these same frescoes when he rented the palazzo for $4,000 a month in the 1920s. In 1935, the attraction was handed over to the city and became a venue for displaying 18th-century art among the sumptuous furnishings. A visit to Ca' Rezzonico represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Venice driving holiday planning website to plot your vacation.

  • Beautiful House, to understand what is a Venetian Palace. This season, or fewer tourists in the town, still less, dc visit very pleasant. After nothing transcendent no more but if you want to do a bit of cultural, a good way

  • If you spend 3 or more days in Venice you can visit this place. 3 floors and about 2 hours to see everything. There are a lot of paintings and some exhibitions with household items showing life in Venice in 18th century.
  • I think it is a 18th century palace that has been turned into a museum of the era and fine arts. In addition to the palace itself, you can see exhibits from the palaces in the city as well as a lot of paintings. From here, the VENEZIA MUSEUM PASS is the easiest to buy because there are no queues at the desks.
