We visited the Palazzo Mocenigo during a rainy afternoon in Venice. I was anticipating seeing the decorations and interior of this grand palace. Instead, we found a uninspired collection of memorabilia displayed in rooms with tall ceilings. Yes, there are portraits of kings and famous...More

We enjoyed our visit to this palazzo. I do think it would benefit from more information about its history and former occupants. We enjoyed the perfume testing very much. There’s a good short film explaining the history of perfume.

This is a beautiful Palazzo which I enjoyed visiting but unfortunately the best isn't made of it - it is a hotch-potch of things to see, with a perfume exhibit, a few costumes, a beautiful house and an exhibit of slightly provocative modern photographs all...More

Venice has a surfeit of riches - especially when it comes to historic attractions. The “Premier League” ones such as the Doge’s Palace, St. Mark’s etc. are so popular, that a visit requires some prior planning – or a long time standing in line. If...More

Small but informative museum. Situated in the "piano nobile", you can explore the different rooms and salons with lots of the original furniture and paintings

We really enjoyed this museum with its "hands-&-nose-on" exposure to the many sources of scents that Venetians imported and mixed to create perfumes, thereby placing Venice in the center of the early fragrance trade. It is one of five historical sites we visited with our...More

I was drawn by the promise of costumes but they were a disappointment. The gowns in the illustration were no where to be seen. The great hall however was very impressive and the perfume display was quite nice. There are many well preserved rooms from...More

Palazzo Mocenigo focuses on textiles, perfumes, spices, clothes etc. I actually found out what the base of my favorite perfume is in one of the rooms offering "aromatic raw material sniffing" :)

San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six
sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest
neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the
markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San

Hi Emma, you have to pay 8€ each adult and 5.50€ for children, perhaps you can go in cheaper with an Venice City pass.
