Frescoes, soft pastel and stucco walls, and luxurious furnishings adorn this 16th-Century mansion known as the Palazzo Querini Stampalia, or the Fondazione (Foundation) Querini Stampalia. During your travel to Venice, this is one place you should strongly consider seeing. A lesser-known Venice palazzo and gallery, it was once inhabited by several generations of the Querini Stampalia family, one of the first families of Venice dating back as far as the 1200s. It’s difficult to tell from the outside of the palace the complete splendor contained inside.
