Famous Venetian Museums

Venice has an abundance of amazing museums to suit every interest. Well known ones include the Peggy Guggenheim, Accademia (which is not to be missed!), Ca' Pesaro. Additionally, one of our favourites is the Palazzo Mocenigo for those interested in perfume and venetian costumes. 


Palazzo Mocenigo is the very same regal palace where Lord Byron lived with his menagerie in 1818! Today, this fabulously chandelier-clad building located by the Grand Canal has become a celebration of historic fashion. The ground floor usually boasts temporary exhibitions, while the main floor (known as the piano nobile) boasts several collections of grand and glamorous outfits, from embroidered silk waistcoats to glamorous ball gowns. You’ll also get to inhale Venice’s fascinating history with perfume, as there’s a special exhibition all about fragrance.
