First, ignore the guide books. Robert Browning, the English poet and playwright, did not own this house but his son, Robert known as Pen, did. Browning did die here on December 12th, 1889 apparently of a common cold. The palace was originally commissioned by the Priuli Bon family to Baldassare Longhena, of Santa Maria della Salute fame, in 1667 although... More

Situated on the Grand canal, this is best reached by vaporetto (Route 1). This is now a Museum of 18th Century artefacts. Several floors: picture gallery on 3rd floor; grand rooms on lower floors with views of Grand Canal. Small garden to rear, with café and book shop on ground floor (all free access - charge only for main Museum).... More

This was a must for us. Art history in Venice at its best. I highly recommend that you buy the audio tour with this.

This palace is situated in Dorsoduro, on the Grand Canal, directly next to a vaporetto stop. While not quite in the same league as Doge’s Palace there are some beautiful painted ceilings and chandeliers. There are three floors with the top floor being devoted entirely to an exhibition of Venetian paintings. Admission is €10 and all bags, with the exception... More

We got off the number 1 waterbus here to visit the site where Indian Jones was filmed. It was a 2minute walk from the water bus stop. There is a lovely cafe which we sat outside and had drinks. There was a Leonardo da Vinci exhibition on here too when we visited which was a Hugh plus . Well worth... More

We were most impressed buy the huge rooms on the lower floor. They were packed with 18th century paintings and furnishings, and with enormous intricate chandeliers. The opulence was impressive. We could not tour this former home without marveling at the enormous wealth associated with Venice of a couple centuries ago.

Actual 18th century palace with grand first floor including imposing ball room and intimate second floor living quarters including a preserved bed-room complete with baby cradle. Not over-furnished but unlike so many buildings of its time never modernized. One or two rooms usually features an exhibit of period objects of all kinds. Third floor (original servants) quarters contains art gallery... More

We chose this as it was a museum set in the style of a historic Palazzo in order to see how the rooms may have been used. It was wonderful with art from a collection of Palazzo's from early 16th -19th century painters. Longhi was a gem and Tieopolo a master plaster artist. The 2 Tintoretto's are well worth the... More

This is the most beautiful palace, now a museum of the 18th Century. Unaccountably quiet, if you're looking for a haven of peace and tranquility in the centre of bustling Venice, then this is the place to go. The painted ceilings are outstanding, as are the Canalettos, only a few of which remain in Venice.

This building houses some beautiful art in an incredible setting. Some rooms are also furnished as it would have been in the 18th century so it's a great glimpse into the past of wealthy Venetians.

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighbourhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
