150 years ago the last Count, Giovanni, created this wonderful collection and left it to the city. As a result, any tourist can enter the palace and experience the life of his family at that time. There is a dining room set out as though...More

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

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
