What to expect

If you're passionate about Venice and about art, this tour is definitely for you.

Accompanied by a private guide, you'll have the chance to visit Palazzo Grimani, a real gem of the Venetian history and architecture dating back to the sixteenth century. In fact, the palazzo housed Giovanni Grimani’s archaeological collection, one of the finest of the time, which was strikingly displayed on shelves, mantelpieces and plinths in settings such as the specially designed Tribuna and the courtyard.

The decoration of the rooms is of extraordinarily high quality, with outstanding stuccowork and frescoes reflecting the confidently unconventional taste of the Grimanis and executed by Mannerist artists such as Giovanni da Udine, Francesco Salviati, Camillo Mantovano, Francesco Menzocchi and Federico Zuccari. Marvel at the beauty of the frescoes and marbles all around you.

If you wish, you'll also have the chance to visit the VII-century Church of Santa Maria Formosa, just next to Palazzo Grimani, and the Basilica dei Santi Giovanni e Paolo.
