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.

  • A great palace, with many items of note, not least the exquisite carved furniture, as well as a reasonable art collection, nice Guardi frescoes, and a lot more. Part of MUVE combined museum ticket.

  • Great museum. Impressive ceiling, artwork, furniture. The chandeliers are especially magnificent. Even the views from the residence and out to the canal below gave a magical feeling of how it must have been to live here. Toilets do not work. Some of the staff are very helpful and friendly.
  • We bought tickets in advance for only €11 and chose the earliest time of 10am, and it wasn’t crowded at all. The staff were so helpful with directions/questions. The only issue we had was that one of the rooms had some works going on for an exhibition, but no info about it, and the 3rd floor was closed also. However, this is really worth a trip to visit. We spent an hour looking round; a lot to see and info sheets in each room, in various languages.
