This museum is situated just south of the San Stae ferry terminal on the south bank of the grand canal, we got entry with our Unica Venezia Museum pass. The museum is housed in an old Venice Palace, which was still inhabited up to the...More
The Museum is fairly small but does an excellent job of displaying and explaining the history of fabric and perfume in the Venetian culture. Most of the displays had English writing and the video also came round to an English version. Wonderful to see a...More
The Palazzo Mocenigo is a beautiful palazzo, but the museum collection is nothing special. In particular many of the explanations of the perfume making process are in Italian, so it is difficult for English speakers to appreciate. Also the fashion collection was small. While there...More

The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San
Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
