Create an itinerary including Ca' Rezzonico
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.

  • Very nice museum with amazing art, sculpture, tapestries, furniture, and ceilings. You'll spend much of your time looking up. The ticket is part of the Venice museum pass. Getting that will save you some money and get you into numerous museums.
  • You can admire some paintings and also masterpieces from Canalleto. Antique furniture and house hold are displayed. They have a coffee shop with tables at the entrance in front of the Gran Canal. We enjoyed the view by having a break to eat something.
