Another palazzo with a magnificent facade that houses a great museum and some other amazing cultural offerings.
Short but intense visit.
Crossing the Grand Canal to the south, in Dorsoduro, you’ll find the Rezzonico family palace. As with many others in this city, you need a few minutes to pay attention to its well-kept facade. Take your time. But when you're done, be sure to enter to dive a little deeper into the cultural heritage of Venice. Inside, there is the museum dedicated to 18th century Venice which collects works of art and decorative objects from various parts of the city. From its popular indoor gondola that greets you at the entrance up to the small classic pharmacy on the third floor, the building is a great open book on the history of Venetian life. Its immense ballroom alone is well worth the trip, quickly bringing to mind images of aristocratic and baroque music festivals. The museum reserves several surprises of great artistic value, such as the art gallery on the third floor, but its strong point is the frescoes that decorate the ceilings. Starting with the famous Nuptial Allegory by Giambattista Tiepolo, you will not stop raising your eyes upwards along the first floor. The visit does not take too much time and this is a good place to connect with the Gallerie dell'Accademia or the Ponte dei Pugni.
