Everybody knows St. Mark's Square. But few know where they run past almost automatically clueless: the Correr Museum in napoleonic part of the Magistrates, almost opposite of the Basilica if San Marco.
It is the first choice for those who want to know about Venice, its culture and its history. On the first floor there are a few early works by Antonio Canova, the most important Italian neoclassical sculptor. Thereafter begins the journey into Venices past, documented by various exhibits (documents, portraits, depictions of the festivals, costumes, coins, weapons, etc.).

Particularly impressive is the Quadreria - the art gallery - on the second floor, from which you can study the development of Venetian painting 13th to the 16th Century in chronological order. The images of great Italian Renaissance masters hang here, the most famous is the Portrait of a young man with a red hat and Two Venetian Ladies by Carpaccio.
