Ca’ Pesaro, the most important baroque palace in the city, designed by Baldassare Longhena, has been the seat of Venice City Council’s collection of Modern Art since 1902. The collection was created in 1897 on occasion of the city’s second Art Biennale. The focus of the museum’s collections consists of works that won prizes or were acquired in the early decades of the Biennale. These include famous masterpieces, such as Klimt’s Judith II (Salomè, 1909) and Chagall’s Rabbi of Vitebsk (1922). One of the museum’s strengths is its vast collection of sculptures, including works in wax by Medardo Rosso, donated to the museum by the artist in 1914. Further acquisitions and bequests have endowed the museum with notable works, from Kandinsky to Klee, Matisse to Moore, as well as a rich selection of works by Italian artists and an important cabinet of graphic art. After restoration works in 2002, the exhibition area has been extended further to the second floor. The Oriental Art Museum, on the third floor, which can be visited with the same ticket.

If you want the best indoor ringside seat to watch the traffic on the Grande Canal sipping coffee and keeping teenagers quiet with a pannini or cake, go here. It's very reasonable and smart and once fed the kids will tag along for hours only occasionally hissing and muttering about the art, each other or us - quite relaxing. My... More

A good collection of modern art. Beautiful place. There is a free wifi corner in the entrance where you can sit and play piano if you want.

This is a natural collection to visit once you've been to the Peggy Guggenheim museum. Easy to reach and part of a museum ticket which was worth buying.

We went to Ca' Pesaro for the late 19th/early 20th century Art and were introduced to excellent Italian Painters and Sculptors of the period as well as seeing works by more familiar names. However, our ticket included entry to the Oriental Galleries further up the building. What a revelation! Weapons to start with, then horse saddles and stirrups, an 18th... More

This place was included in my Museum Pass so I went along to have a look. It is a beautiful old palace that houses two very different museums on separate floors - a museum of Oriental Art and a museum of Modern Art. The oriental one was mildly interesting, but I really enjoyed the modern art gallery. Many excellent pieces... More

We were interested in all three area of this gallery,the modern art, Chanel exhibition and the oriental floor. Three collections housed in a lovely building on the canal. We also enjoyed coffee on the balcony watching the canal traffic go by.

Having travelled the length of Venice to specifically see the Chanel Culture exhibition, it was disconcerting to find that the guide was in minuscule print and the rooms very dark. We were then dismayed to be asked to leave an ID document to hire an audio guide. As UK citizens we don't carry an ID document and our passports were... More

We haven't visited the gallery for a few years so we went to se their modern art collection and also to see the Coco Chanel exhibition. Both were really good - well displayed and documented. We also went up to see the Oriental collection which was fabulous. We finished in the museum cafe and had very good coffee. An excellent... More

This is a good spot with works from Rodin to Miro, and also with an oriental art museum. It was nice to potter around it for an hour or two. You had to pay to get in and the only information you could get on what was there was on laminated sheets in the gallery. I would have liked something... More

Staying in San Polo

Neighbourhood Profile
San Polo
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.
