Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Veneto / Province of Venice / City of Venice / Venice / Palazzo Grassi
History unfolds at Palazzo Grassi, a peach-colored 18th-century palace that sits along Venice's Grand Canal. Its academic Classical architecture starkly contrasts with the Byzantine Romanesque and Baroque Venetian styles of the neighboring palaces, a testament to its 1772 completion, which made it a latecomer among palaces on the canal. It features a formal façade of white marble and lacks the lower mercantile openings of its counterparts. The building has served as an art gallery since its restoration in 1983, currently housing the personal art collection of François Pinault, a contemporary art enthusiast. While the building's historical significance is preserved in its exterior, the interior has been completely renovated in a modern design. Take a tour of the building to see the ever-changing contemporary displays exhibited over three floors of the former palace.

The word stunning is all you can use to describe this wonderul palace and its neighborhood. It is a place one must see to understand and the art is also quite interesting. Each time one visits Venice one is able to see some interesting new things. It is a stop that one should make on a visit to this wonderful destination
Superb renovation. Over described exhibition. All words and little painting.
