Ca' Rezzonico, Venice

4.5
#3 of 81 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.

  • It is certainly worth visiting this Venetian Palace. We had the gift of go in winter and they played us two days that it snowed in Venice just in time for the end of February, a show seen from the Palace all snowy rooftops of the city. The Palace is great but runs in the hour and a half approximately, your furniture and decoration are exquisite, as well as pictures that are exposed. Admission is 10 euros. It is worth to pay for it!
