Very steep admission price of €13 for what you get, there is a student discount but this only applies to arts students. This place used to be adorned in gold in its heyday, hence the name (oro means gold). You get a nice collection of...More

If you're a carpet expert, this might interest you. Otherwise, save your money. The show principally serves to provide further evidence of the fact that when carpets are shown in Renaissance paintings, their role is minor and incidental. The paintings are beautiful, first-class works. But...More

I visited for the building alone. It dates back to the 15th century and the facade fronting the Grand Canal is beautiful (containing what seems like a variety of architectural influences), as is the inner courtyard and upstairs loggia. The contents of Galleria Franchetti include...More

Originally built in the mid 15th C, Ca' d'Oro is a splendid example of Venetian architecture and would have been beyond imagination in it's youth when it was covered in colour and gold. It might not be as stunning as it may have been, but...More

This 700 year old palazzo is today a museum housing a huge collection. Most of the interior is relatively modern, but the ground floor with the large mosaics is very much intact as are the 2 loggia porches that look out over the Grand Canal.

Whilst Ca' d'Oro looks wonderful from the canal side, nothing prepares you for the sheer beauty of the interior. The ground floor is an amazing tour de force of architectural splendour. Baron Franchetti rescued this fabulous palace from almost certain decline. The collections are superb...More

It is a museum of the palace but also an art museum. You will have a great view of the grand canal from the balcony.

When we visited, we thought we were going to see more Palazzo and less museum but it is really the other way around. We didn't realize it is mainly a museum in what was once a palazzo. Still, the courtyard, in particular, at the ground...More

Can I take a small back pack into the museum?

Don't know specifically. My wife took her small purse into the museum, so it may depend on how small the backpack is. It could be left at the checkin desk.
