Ca'd’Oro is one of the most prestigious late Gothic palaces in Venice and home to the Galleria Giorgio Franchetti alla Ca’ d’Oro Palazzo. The gallery has displayed Baron Giorgio Franchetti’s (1865 - 1927) exquisite art collection since he donated the building and works to the State of Italy in 1916.

The artworks featured in the gallery include furniture, paintings, medals, tapestries, bronzes and sculptures, some of which are Renaissance pieces from demolished religious buildings and Gallerie dell’Accademia collections.

The inner courtyard of the Ca d’Oro features a stunning marble mosaic made by Franchetti himself, evoking early Christian cathedrals. The well curb was sculpted in 1427 but Bartolomeo Bon.

The remains of Baron Giorgio Franchetti are interred in the atrium of the Ca d’Oro.
