Ca' Rezzonico, Venice

4.5
#3 of 85 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.

  • This is a lovely palazzo filled with gorgeous artwork but not a lot of furniture. We were surprised at how few visitors were there when we visited. We went primarily because we had the Venice Museum P...  more »
  • We bought a ticket called Museum Pass for 24 euros and gave us access, in addition to this museum, to Palazzo Ducale, Museo Archeologico, Ca ' Pesaro, Museo Del Vetro in Murano, Museo del Merletto, Museo di Storia Naturale, among others. The Ca ' Rezzonico has the name of the family that bought the palace in 1750. Subsequently, the palace had other owners, but kept the name of the Rezzonico family and transformed it into a museum dedicated to the EIGHTEENTH century Venetian. Its main façade is facing the grand Canal and in its interior were kept pompous rooms and alcoves of the EIGHTEENTH century, with furniture of the time as baby cot, bed, wardrobe, besides beautiful works in their pinacotecs (see photos).

  • This stunning museum was the palace of one of Venice’s rich families. It has so many beautiful rooms and showcases art and architecture. It’s included in the city pass and it’s right on the grand canal.
  • This wonderful museum within the palace is a joy to visit. It has several rooms, most with a bench for sitting to enjoy the room and artwork. Each room has a descriptive card (in many languages). It has never been crowded when we have visited. It is filled with treasures of furniture, paintings, China, sculptures, and Fresco's.
