Two areas not to miss on the ground floor are the beautiful, but small, garden (English garden with oriental influence) along with a cafe with a nice quiet area for sitting and talking away from the hustle and bustle.

we made a special visit to the library today. The guard told us quite curtly it was only open for Italians today. Nowhere on any documentation or website does it state this. also the toilets were most unpleasant. Very disappointed with Qurini Stampalia.

Was excited to visit. Very interesting and well kept museum. Pompous rooms. Lovely paintings - among them historic paintings of venetian daily life. Acrobats in the St Marcus square, gondola race etc. No crowds. Café. I recommend.

These two great artists, brothers-in-law, painted nearly identical works, one largely traces from the other. This museum owns one, the other is on loan in 2018 from Berlin. Fascinating comparison, with very illuminating information and analysis. Apart from this you can see how this family...More

The Querini Stampalia was a quaint museum to visit. Originally a private home, the interiors were elegant, and the art collection was interesting.

This museum is a little off the beaten track but worth seeking out. It forms one floor of an old palazzo that has been completely modernised (on the other floors). You get to see the entire living quarters of an 18th Century Venetian family with...More

We added this to our Venezia Unica pass. It was a little confusing. You get your ticket in the bookstore which is in the back of the building. If there is no one at the door just keep wandering. It is not very well signposted....More

We visited this museum expecting to pop in and out for a flavour of life 400 years ago. We found that we stayed longer than expected. The rooms give you an idea of life two hundred years ago and the walls are covered in artwork...More

Castello is the largest of the six sestieri
(districts), and the only one not facing onto the
Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated
within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over
one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime
neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side
streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals
criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
