In the heart of Venice, near Piazza San Marco, is one of the most interesting cultural complexes in the city: Palazzo Querini Stampalia, the home of the Foundation of the same name created in 1868 by Count Giovanni.The Library, with around 340.000...more

Two areas not to miss on the ground floor are the beautiful, but small, garden (English garden with oriental influence) along with a cafe with a nice quiet area for sitting and talking away from the hustle and bustle.
we made a special visit to the library today. The guard told us quite curtly it was only open for Italians today. Nowhere on any documentation or website does it state this. also the toilets were most unpleasant. Very disappointed with Qurini Stampalia.
The Querini Stampalia is a 16th century Palace that is located North East of St Mark's square and entry was via our Unica Venezia museum pass (Pack version). This Palace and all its contents were left by Count Giovanni Stampalia in 1969 to the city...More
Was excited to visit. Very interesting and well kept museum. Pompous rooms. Lovely paintings - among them historic paintings of venetian daily life. Acrobats in the St Marcus square, gondola race etc. No crowds. Café. I recommend.
These two great artists, brothers-in-law, painted nearly identical works, one largely traces from the other. This museum owns one, the other is on loan in 2018 from Berlin.
Fascinating comparison, with very illuminating information and analysis. Apart from this you can see how this family...More
If You have it in your City Pass and have free time you can go.
But in my opinion nothing special.
Small. But nice building. The comparision of Bellini Mantegna was the most interesting. Rest is just OK.
Would t pay the normal price.
This museum is a little off the beaten track but worth seeking out. It forms one floor of an old palazzo that has been completely modernised (on the other floors). You get to see the entire living quarters of an 18th Century Venetian family with...More
We added this to our Venezia Unica pass. It was a little confusing. You get your ticket in the bookstore which is in the back of the building. If there is no one at the door just keep wandering. It is not very well signposted....More
We visited this museum expecting to pop in and out for a flavour of life 400 years ago. We found that we stayed longer than expected. The rooms give you an idea of life two hundred years ago and the walls are covered in artwork...More
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.
