Overview
More
A patrician residence at San Stae, Palazzo Mocenigo houses valuable 18th century artworks and is also home to the Study Centre for the History of Textiles and Costumes. A fine selection of rare textiles and costumes of particular importance are displayed. The collection is laid out with a significant importance given to garments and accessories. Mainly of Venetian origin, the works are often embellished with lace and embroidery, skills of several artisans who made such a contribution to that refined luxury and elegance for which the Venetians of those days were famous for.

Very nicely done museum, included in the Venice Museum pass. The museum itself was quite empty, maybe because we went just before closing. All the information is provided in English, German and French. They've got a great couple rooms on perfume and perfume collections, including...More

The Palazzo Mocenigo is a beautiful palazzo, but the museum collection is nothing special. In particular many of the explanations of the perfume making process are in Italian, so it is difficult for English speakers to appreciate. Also the fashion collection was small. While there...More

Interesting display of embroidered waistcoats from the 17th and 18th century. The content of the museum is slightly disappointing if your main...More

This was a good brief stop off and we were surprised to be plunged into a palace. The shut drapes to protect the textiles made the atmosphere oppressive and gloomy but it did give an interesting insight into that 18c. World. Costume wise there were...More

San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six
sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest
neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the
markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
