An artistic journey
This tour develops in a chronological order with the visit of the Frari, a huge Franciscan church that shrines unique funerary monuments and ashtonishing canvases by master painters. The elegant venue of San Rocco brotherwood is located nearby. Here in XVI century Tintoretto left a complete cycle of paintings representing the Old and the New Testament.
Before we walk to our third museum we take a short break to drink or grab something. Cà Rezzonico is an elegant palace located over the Grand Canal and was the home to one of the richest families in town. The visit is the chance to see interior decor in VXIII century Venice, made of elaborated furniture, tapestry and frescoes. Here is also possible to admire the only two Canalettos in Venice, and works by Guardi, Longhi and Tiepolo.
