I was staying at the hotel across the alleyway and, on the last day there, realized that this Galleria had actually existed right under my nose this whole time -- really glad I made the choice to check it out, because it is really a...More

Sorry, I was not very impressed with the Galleria. It was ok, although the tapestries were pretty incredible, I didn't find that a visit to this Galleria was worth the time and money. Maybe if you are "looking" for something to do, but I wouldn't...More

We took the "traghetto" from just outside the fish market to Ca' d'Oro, an impressive late Gothic palace. Baron Giorgio Franchetti who took on the building in a poor state of repair, completed extensive renovations so he had somewhere to house his art collection. In...More

I was happier with my experience at Ca' d'Oro than the Gallerie Accademia actually. The gallery at Ca' d'Oro is much more diverse. If you are looking for something that is not overwhelmed with other tourists, go to this gallery. We were pleasantly surprised that...More

We were expecting rather more of a palazzo feel about the place, but it seemed a bit of a jumble of things the owner had collected. The audio guide was difficult to follow, and the Italian lady speaking English on it spoke too fast.

Truly, I was disappointed. I am huge fan of Signorelli's, but this flagellation is definitely workshop material. The single truly exceptional work is the Mantegna San Sebastiano. Even the recently cleaned del Sarto is not so great, beautiful colors, but goofy looking faces (even for...More

The magical setting of the Ca' d'Oro, one of the most beautiful palaces in Venice, is home to an extremely eclectic collection of paintings, sculptures, marble and bronze reliefs, fragments of frescoes and tapestries.

Heading in the direction of the Ca'd'Oro vaporetta stop to visit a modern art museum we stumbled upon a beautiful sun soaked courtyard. We soon realised the courtyard belonged to the Ca'd'Oro (golden house) Franchetti Gallery. We were lured in. The building itself was built...More
