The Accademia Galleries and Ca' Rezzonico
Venice in the past Centuries was not only a rich and very powerful country: it was also one of the capital cities of the Great Italian Art.
We will start at the Accademia Galleries, one of the most important museum of the city, where the masterpieces made by great artists between the XIV and XVIII centuries are kept: admiring Paolo Veneziano, Giovanni Bellini, Giorgione, Tiziano, Veronese and Tintoretto, you will understand the development of the Venetian Art through the centuries.
You wil learn how and why these wonderful pieces were made here, not in other places, thank to a deep introduction over the historic, economic and socio-political background that will make it clear how the Venetians could create one of the most unique way to represent light, life, space and time.
We will then visit Ca' Rezzonico, the real house of the Rezzonico family, where you will see how did they live in the XVIII Century and how Art was important in daily life to celebrate the families and the country's Power
After meeting where agreed (preferably in front of the Accademia Galleries), we will visit one of the most important Art museums of Italy, exploring the Venetian Art through the Centuries.
Then, walking off the beaten paths, we will reach Ca' Rezzonico, where, admiring original carpets, furniture, chandeliers, paintings made in the XVIII Century, you will understand how the wealthy families of merchants lived in Venice in the past.

My husband and I spent four delightful hours with Nicoletta. She took us to Academia and to Scuola Grande di San Rocco. She was wonderfully knowledgeable and with a light touch, enlightening. Nicoletta is also very pleasant and we learned from her a lot about life in Venice in addition to the art.
