This renaissance style palace became museum in 2015 thus it isn't as popular as the others in Venice but it's truly worth to visit. The decorated ceiling is breathtaking and you can have it to yourself for a long time since there aren't many tourists...More

Beautiful stucchi and decorated ceilings. Imposing palace housing a few statues. Easy to visit thanks to extended opening hours and uncrowded rooms

I had seen images of one of the rooms of this palazzo-turned-museum, before my visit, and knew I wanted to see it in person. The museum was exceptionally empty while I was there -- maybe 10 other attendees the whole time; I felt like I...More

Venice is full of spectacular, outstanding, wonderful palazzi. Palazzo Grimani is probably not one of them. And maybe this is why it is so interesting. That said, it hosts a wonderful painting by Bosch (temporarily on display at the Galleria dell'Accademia). And a single room...More

We were fortunate to find some displays of great appeal but it is not always the case. This palazzo is down the Venice equivalent of a side alley (a narrow quiet canal) and you feel the contrast between being in the vast rooms and being...More

Because this place contains no furnishings, one is able to concentrate on the architectural concept of a Venetian palazzo and examine fascinating decorative details which might well be overlooked if the rooms were full of distracting objects. The building is a monument to the power,...More

Good quality old paintings, architecture in the palace of a previous Doge. Almost no tourist in this place as they rather patronize Rialto next door

Palazzo Gramática is a beautiful palace of an important Venetian family and it is really beautiful. As far as the museum is concerned. It is difficult to imagine a more neglected museum where they really put little effort to make it interesting and welcoming. A...More

Castello is the largest of the six sestieri

Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated
within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over
one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime
neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side
streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals
criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a

Heather, you're quite right, you need to map or satnav your way there. It's obvious when you are in Piazza Maria Formosa but that takes a bit of doing. The pleasure of walking through the little alleys to get there is what... More

Response from Perry G | Reviewed this property |
It costs 4 euros to visit and is open most days 9am until 7pm. It is not far from Campo Santa Maria Formosa.
Can tickets be purchased at the Palazzo Grimani entrance or booked online, phone, etc? Thanks.
