Top ways to experience Ca' d'Oro and similar attractions

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Cannaregio
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.

The staffs are all rude here. It started at the gate. Staffs stationed at the lower storie and upper storie were all rude. Nothing major to see.

I loved this museum and what the installations installed for the Biennale. The Palazzo itself is beautiful and worth a visit (oh the views), don't miss the gardens with the gorgeous tile work. The art is very interesting and especially so with the fantastic installations. We bought tickets in advance. Loved every minute of the visit and am so worried about what happened to the gardens with the tide.

The Ca'd'Oro designed by Giovanni and Bartolomeo Bon and built between 1428 and 1430 for the Contarini family, one of the most important families in Venice of which eight members were Doges between 1043 and 1676, has a Ventian Gothic facade which has been the inspiration for paintings and architecture around the world, such as the building of the same name in Glasgow, Scotland. (Glasgow also has a building modelled on the Doge's Palace).

Ca'd'Oro's last owner, Baron Giorgio Franchetti collected art and restored the palazzi as a suitable home in which to display his splendid collection.

If that isn't enough to see on a visit, Carpenters Workshop Gallery have filled the historic rooms with amazing artistic contemporary furniture, lighting and objects by a host of artists including Nacho Carbonell, Wendell Castle, Vincenzo de Coiis, Studio Drift, Marten Baas, Stuart Haygarth, Vincent Dubourg, Atelier Van Lieshout, Random International, the Verheven Twins and Rick Owens in what is undoubtedly one of the best shows within the city itself during this year's Biennale.

We were stunned by the building and the sense of history. The exhibit itself was fascinating but the opportunity to walk through the quiet rooms and to look out on the Grand Canal was worth the price of admission. The visit was a nice retreat from the crowds of tourists in the cafes and on the streets in the area about the museum.

To imagine how many hands this 700 year old "private home" passed through and to be able in 2019 to view the inside is truly amazing.
Every detail of this classical Venetian and Renaissance building, one of the few VenetianGothic style still in existence is stunning.
The stone, brick & marble work, the ceiling work, mosaics, intricate windows, columns, flooring, railing, even the some of the walls were works of art. Amazing how thry lived in this magical city centuries ago, riding up to your home by water, there's also a rear entrance unto the walks ways of Venice, with a beautifully crafted door.
The Museum was open when I visted which is on the second floor, works collected by the last owner of palazzo, Baron Giorgio Franchetti; who gifted Ca' d'Oro for the purpose of museum in the 19th century, who I believe tome is there.

Highlights] -Andrea Mantegna 1490 'St Sebastian' and the intricate mosaics and architecture.

The most amazing place in Venice, beautiful building, incredible artwork, a real must see. Artwork rivals that at the biennale. The staff working there are really knowledgable and happy to chat with you about the works. Very unique space.

We visited Ca’d’Oro on a very rainy day. We really loved the building and it’s contents. The modern art installations are stunning and work so well in this ancient setting. Do go if you get the chance.

Enjoyed the tour with the architecture and art. Lots of Medieval art with some more modern installations. Would recommend with the Palazzo di Grimani.

I loved visiting the Ca' d'Oro. I had seen the outside many years ago, and had since made a painting of the building, so was delighted to go inside, and look out onto the canal, a lovely experience and very atmospheric of centuries past.
