Ca' Farsetti is a palace in Venice, Italy. It is located in the sestiere (district) of San Marco, and faces the Grand Canal, not far from the Ponte di Rialto.


The palace was built in the 13th century by the heirs of doge Enrico Dandolo. The palace however suffered near destruction in a fire in 1524.: Federigo Contarini, who bought it in 1440, added two further floors. It was acquired around 1670 by the Farsetti family, who established here an academy in the 18th century. In the early 19th century it was converted into a hotel and in 1926 it became a property of the municipality of Venice.


The lower floors are in Venetian-Byzantine style with a portico with Corinthian columns, similar to that of the neighbouring Ca' Loredan. The piano nobile has fifteen arcades connected by a balustrade. The second floor and the mezzanine are in Renaissance style.

  • 3 Stello only because it is Venice, history the monuments, but the situation is always the usual, Italy lives of the beautiful splendour of the past, living and take advantage of tourism... A city that in a foreign hand would be a JEWEL! In the Hand Anoi unfortunately is in the Sfacelo, dirty, decadent, you save the most famous monuments, also ' they with the need for restoration. Everything is studied pee plucking the tourist... Let's not talk about the €7.50 for a ride on public transport, the baths to €1.50 euros per person, parking lot, and who has more more... Absurd! A real pity, a real sadness...
