Marino Contarini wanted to build Venice’s most beautiful palace in 1420, so he commissioned Giovanni Bon and his son Bartolomeo to make his House of Gold. And so was born a building of floral Gothic, Byzantine and even Moorish influence. It’s one of the most photograph buildings on the Grand Canal. The name isn’t casual – the façade is actually decorated in gold leaf, vermilion, and ultramarine. Once falling into neglect, the building was saved by Baron Giorgio Franchetti, who then bequeathed it to the city of Venice. Today, it displays the Baron’s art collections, which include the works of Titian, Tintoretto, Carpaccio, Tiepolo, Giorgione, van Eyck and van Dyck. There’s a cute small inner courtyard. Occasionally, temporary exhibitions are hosted here. Check the Venice in 4 Days itinerary to see the other places you can travel to with Ca' D' Oro.

Beautiful Venetian art in a historic structure. See from inside what you’ve seen every time you pass it on the vaporetto and imagine what it must have been like to live in such a wonderful space.
Fine small museum - we bought a joint ticket with its sister: Museum of Palazzo Grimani, which is also worth the visit
I went around 1 pm Friday and basically had the entire place to myself. All the artwork is outstanding, as is the palace itself. You can get very close to it too and take as many pictures as you'd like. The palace also offers great views of the grand canal. My only gripe is that a few exhibits were closed off with no explanation as to why.
One of the nicest museums in Venice. Worth a visit!
Fab views from upper windows of the grand canal. Pick any floor for something good to look at
