Among the museums of Venice, Ca' Rezzonico in Venice, Italy stands for the setting, which recreates that of a noble Venetian residence of the 18th century, complete with original period furniture and furnishings and works of art by the most important artists of the period - including Guardi , Longhi, Canaletto, Tiepolo and Tintoretto. Designed and decorated by the greatest artists of the 18th-century, the Ca’ Rezzonico palace in Venice is a work of art. It was acquired by the City of Venice to convert it into a temple during the era of elegance, sophistication and dissipation that was envied throughout Europe.

The layout of the museum Ca' Rezzonico Museum in Venice presents a rational succession of rooms capable of taking the modern visitor through a timeless atmosphere: the ground floor highlights the Baroque juxtaposition of solids and voids between courtyards and porches, while the three upper floors offer an endless parade of works of art, frescos and everyday objects arranged as if the building was still inhabited. Paintings, furniture and frescoes lost or sold over the course of time have been supplemented with material from other contemporary palaces of Venice or purchased on the antiques market.

On the ground floor of the Ca' Rezzonico gallery, the entrance offers the visitor services - Ca' Rezzonico  Venice tickets office, cloakroom, information, café, bookshop, lift, toilets - while the pretty Ca' Rezzonico garden lends itself to host small theatrical performances.

Here is a brief look at the exhibition of Ca' Rezzonico paintings:

  • Mezzanino Browningpresents the Mestrovich Collection, a remarkable group of paintings by artisits such as Francesco Guardi, Jacopo Tintoretto, Benedetto Carpaccio and Cima da Conegliano donated to the civic museum by the collector Dalmata Ferruccio Mestovich.
  • The tour of the Ca' Rezzonico Museum of 18th Century Art starts from the beautiful grand staircase, through which you access the eleven rooms of the first floor. Among these deserve special attention: the splendid ballroom with two of its original chandeliers, the Allegory Wedding Hall with its beautiful ceiling frescoes by Giambattista Tiepolo; the beautiful pastel portraits housed in the Pastels Hall; a door lacquered in yellow and decorated with subjects in an Oriental style in the Hall of Tapestries; the porcelain collection housed in the passage that leads to the library; a desk by the cabinetmaker Peter Piffetti exhibited in the Lazzarini Hall; the furniture pieces sculpted by Andrea Brustolon for the Venier family which are considered as the greatest masterpiece of Venetian woodcarving of the first part of the 17th century.
  • On the second floor of Ca' Rezzonico, Canaletto shows the 'portego of the paintings': the two paintings shown here are the artist’s only ones belonging to the circuit of the Venetian Civic Museums. Antonio and Francesco Guardi, Luke Carlevarijs, and other famous Venetian landscape painters of the eighteenth century period complement the works exhibited in the paintings in Ca' Rezzonico. From the next corridor an extraordinary succession of rooms begins which are devoted to one of the undisputed stars of Ca' Rezzonico: Tiepolo. The frescoes from the villa Zianigo, the artist’s residency, are displyed in order to recreate the original arrangement. The result is one of the most fascinating moments of the entire visit to the Ca' Rezzonico Museum of 18th Century art. While the second floor offers visitors many other wonders: the faithful reconstruction of the interior of a rural villa for the Venetian nobles and a typical bedroom of the 17th century- where you can admire, amongst others, the special vanity set which belonged to the Pisani Family, manufactured in Augsburg; works by Pietro Longhi and Antonio Guardi , not to mention the 'nun parlour of San Zaccaria' and 'Ridotto of Dandolo palace in St Moise' , two of the most famous works of Francesco Guardi at the Ca' Rezzonico Museum.
  • The last part of the visit to the Ca' Rezzonico Museum of 18th Century art in Venice, takes place on the third floor of the building where you will find a wide collection donated to the Civic Museums of Venice by Egidio Martini. The Pinacoteca Egidio Martini features works from the 15th to the 20th century, almost exclusively of the Venetian school, such as Tintoretto, Cima da Conegliano , Alvise Vivarini, Palma il Giovane, Tiepolo, Longhi. Next to them are some, 'lesser known' artists who, thanks to the studies of this great patron have received proper recognition. Mythologies, portraits, landscapes, genre scenes, allegories and religious subjects…the Art Gallery of Egidio Martini offers an exciting and unusual journey through the golden age of Venetian paintings. Of particular charm are the three rooms od the Pharmacy Ai do San Marchi - also on the third floor of Ca' Rezzonico - recreating the original construction of the homonymous pharmacy in Campo San Stin decorated with majolica vases, furniture and glassware from the island of Murano.

'early closing'

Ticket
Museum Pass

The pass was very useful and enabled us to avoid queues at the main museums but on the day we were in Venice the museums all closed early (15.00) to facilitate a union meeting. It would have helpful to have been made aware of this in advance so that we could have re-arranged our schedule.

Strengths

avoided queues

Weaknesses

Lacked forward warning of closures.

Dear Tommy,

thank you for you feedback! Unfortunately we were not informed about this extraordinary union meeting and therefore were not able to notify our customers that the museums would have closed before the usual closing time. We apologize for any inconvenience!

'Smart Phone Voucher'

Ticket
Museum Pass

Although the email for my booking indicated that the " voucher is the only valid document and you can present it to our staff either on a paper copy or on a mobile device", the voucher on my smart phone was not accepted at the Doge's Palace. In addition, the staff at the Palace acted very annoyed that I was trying to submit the documentation on my mobile device.


Reply by venetoinside.com Staff

Dear Chuck,

unfortunately on the confirmation email it is specified ‘The voucher is the only valid document and you can present it to our staff either on a paper copy or on a mobile device (smartphones, tablets or other devices) according to instructions specified on it’. The voucher of the Museum Pass clearly said that the voucher MUST BE PRESENTED on a paper copy. We are sorry you did not read carefully the information, we are transparent in notifying our customers about the correct procedure to use their reservation.

We were only in Venice long enough to see a couple of the museums on the pass, but Dodges Palace was worth the price alone.

'So easy'

Ticket
Museum Pass

Very straight forward ticket collection with voucher at Doge's Palace early in morning before the queues had built up and then easy to access some very interesting museums included on pass. All had great facilities and very well kept informative collections. Places we managed to visit over a long weekend were: The amazing Doge's Palace, surprisingly large Correr Museum, fascinating Glass Museum on Murano, classy Casa Pesara (Modern Art and Japanese artefacts), beautiful Ca Rezzonico (18th Century palazzo). Fully recommend buying a Museum pass and I would do it again.

Strengths

Ease of collection; peace of mind, value for money; several beautiful museums well worth seeing

Weaknesses

Some museums were not included but are on the map i.e The Clock Tower. Also two museums are within the Correr Museum anyway (Archaeology/Library)


Reply by venetoinside.com Staff

Dear KLW,

thank you for your kind and detailed review! As for the museums included, please consider that they are indicated both online and on the voucher issued at the end of the online reservation. On the voucher there is no map showing the museums, so it is not clear to us where you found the map with museums not included in the Museum Pass. Please send us further detail at info@insidecom.it.

'Welcome to the 21st Century'

Ticket
Museum Pass

We purchased 4 tickets on-the-go. Afterwards we realized that we needed to print them but, of course, the museums don't have the facilities and the people who were working there the day of were rather dismissive of our predicament. Almost 100 Euro straight down the drain. Even with the emailed confirmation we were barred entry and, in this age of digital technology, that was completely inexcusable.


Reply by venetoinside.com Staff

Dear SavvyTraveller,

we are deeply sorry about what happened. Unfortunately a paper copy of the voucher is required by the Venice Civic Museums and therefore we have to comply with their official regulations. The necessity to print the voucher is specified on venetoinside.com before the beginning of the online reservation procedure, as we are transparent in conveying this important information to our customers… We regret you missed this important detail but hope that your comment will help other travellers to avoid the same omission.
