Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Veneto / Province of Venice / City of Venice / Venice / Palazzo Barbarigo
Palazzo Barbarigo is a palace in Venice, Italy, situated on the Grand Canal of the city. It was originally built in the 16th century. Today it is one of the more opulent palazzi on the canal, distinguished by its mosaics of Murano glass applied in 1886. At the time it was owned by the proprietors of one of the glass factories, who took their cue from the exterior mosaics on the facade of St Mark's Basilica. The palazzo follows the Renaissance pattern of design on three floors: an open loggia gives access to the canal surmounted by a Piano nobile with open loggias and decorated columns, with a "secondo piano nobile" (secondary floor) above. The comparatively modern mosaics probably cover original windows, and obliviate the original design.When the mosaics were executed, the then new owners were decried by their more aristocratic neighbours as nouveaux riches, and their taste garish and out of keeping with the genteel decay of the neighbouring buildings. However, it should be remembered that many of the Renaissance palazzi on the canal were once too covered in polychrome and gilt decorations, with elaborate plaster and stucco work adding to their splendour.Plan your Palazzo Barbarigo visit and explore what else you can see and do in Venice using our Venice travel itinerary planner.

運河に面しているファサードが、とても豪華でめだっている建物です、ちょっと豪華なかんじがします。ただ、ベネチアらしい（？）風情は、あまり無いかもしれません。確か、前に映画のワンシーンで見た様な気もします。実際に見ても、印象的でした。 more »The façade facing the canal is a very luxurious building, and it feels a little luxurious. However, it seems to be Venetian. There may not be much taste. Sure, I feel like I saw in the scene of the movie before. Actually, it was impressive.
Staff very helpful and welcoming, ideal location for getting to see all the sights. The room we stayed in was excellent, spacious, clean, and great view over the water.
Truly wonderful stay
