In this most famous palace on the Grand Canal, whose oriental influenced Venetian Gothic-style Florido lets one think of "the heavenly game of rock and air", you will find the Franchetti Gallery. It shows the collections of the last owner, Baron Giorgio Franchetti.
Worth a visit it is because of the paintings of Tizians Venus, Mantegnas St. Sebastian and Carpaccios preaching and death of holy virgin.
Furthermore it shows rare furniture from Gothic and Renaissance and Flemish tapestries and a coin collection, of which the earliest pieces are from the 15th century.
The Ca' d'Oro now shines again in its former glory, finally the city had the facade restored of multi-colored marble.
