Wander through a marble manor emerging from the Venice Grand Canal. Galleria Giorgio Franchetti alla Ca’ d’Oro is a gallery housed within a former palace. Gothic pillars and patterns carve out interesting shapes on the building. Spot shadows cast on colorful marble mosaics. The balcony offers an envious view of the Grand Canal, so have fun playing around with all the possibilities! The gallery pays homage to Giorgio Franchetti, its former patron. The name also comes from the gold that covered its facade. Many of these things may have faded in time, but the gallery’s splendor has persisted high waters.
