Walking Tour

  • Our exploration of the lively Dorsoduro neighborhood will take us first to the magnificent palace known as the Ca’ Rezzonico on the Grand Canal: to wander through its many rooms is to enter the carnival world of 18th century Venice. Fantastic carved and lacquered furniture fills the vast ballroom while the adjoining salons boast airy ceiling paintings by Gian Battista Tiepolo. In one fresco - painted in 1758 – an allegorical figure of Fame trumpets the socially advantageous marriage between a Rezzonico son and the daughter of one of the oldest Venetian noble families.
  • Behind the palace is the charming Rio San Barnaba where a floating fruit and vegetable barge adds a touch of local color. The Ponte dei Pugni still bears the footprints of the Castellani and Niccolini, two rival gangs who had fist fights on this bridge with the loser ending up in the waters of canal. The bridge leads into the sprawling Campo Santa Margherita with its picturesque market and outdoor cafes.
  • Around the corner is Scuola di Santa Maria dei Carmini. The two floors of this religious confraternity were richly decorated in the 18th century and include Tiepolo's famous ceiling painting of “The Virgin Mary Giving the Scapular to St. Simon Stock”. Tiepolo's light touch and shimmering pastel palette owes much to his study of the Renaissance painter Paolo Veronese, whose masterpiece of illusionistic ceiling decoration was painted for the nearby convent church of San Sebastiano between 1555 and 1565. Appropriately, Veronese is buried beneath these opulent Old Testament scenes.
  • Last stop on the tour will be the church of the Gesuati on the Zattere for a look at Tiepolo's splendid ceiling depicting “The Apotheosis of St. Dominic”.
