Top ways to experience Ca' d'Oro and nearby 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 building was built in the 15th century by the architects Giovanni Bon and his son Bartolomeo Bon, commissioned by the patrician Marino Contarini, procurator of San Marco, representative of the family that granted Venice the eight doges between 1043 and 1676. The stone carver was Matteo Raverti. The name "Ca'd'Oro" is explained by the fact that in the decoration of its facades the technique of inlay with multi-colored marble was used with the inclusion of gold leaf and partial painting of stone openwork carvings with ultramarine.

Our visit to Ca' d'Oro was two-fold: see the wonderful Giorgio Franchetti art collection and see a beautiful Venetian palazzo. The courtyard and adjoining portego in this Venetian Gothic style palazzo dating back to the 1400s are stunning...terrazzo floor with designs done in rich reds, greens, and gold and white. A memorial to Giorgio Franchetti is installed here. Then we went up to the art gallery to see their beautiful art collection featuring works--both paintings and sculptures--by Mantegna, Bernini, Guardi, Carpaccio, Titian, some Flemish works, and more. Don't forget to check out the views of the Grand Canal from the 3rd floor balcony.

The palace is beautiful Venetian Gothic, offering a couple of terraces looking out on the Grand Canal, as well as an impressive collection of sculptures and some paintings.

Wonderful setting, very good food and terrific waiter named Monir. We stumbled upon the restaurant on a very warm evening, and we were periodically misted to be cooled. The steak was terrific, and the Crepe Suzette rivaled the best anywhere in France.

We were staying right opposite this palace, so had admired the exterior. The interior is just as glorious: beautiful courtyard, the gallery, and of course the view!

This place is super far away from the center of Venice. It took us more than an hour to go there and come back. Ticketvis €13, which is much more expensive than any other museums in Venice. Yet, there is basically nothto see at all. They advertise it as an old palace. Accurately, the oraginal inereia has been totall demolished and nothing like a palace at all. There are about 20 pieces of items on the first floor. The 2nd floor is closed. But they did not tell us when we bought the tickets. The ground floor is an empty yard. It is 100% waste of time and menoy. DO NOT GO TO THIS PLACE!!!

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.
