Marble Palaces

This canal is between the Tre Archi Bridge and the Guglie Bridge, at Cannaregio. 

A note about marble palaces in Venice, as the one you can see above: Venetian palaces often have only the facade in marble; the other 3 sides usually have only bricks.Which Venetian palaces have more than one marble side?two of them are Palazzo Labia and Ca'Pesaro. For example, this is the marble left side of Ca'Pesaro: 

It's unusual for a hidden side of a palace to be entirely covered by marble. Click here

  1. Dear Francesca Dandolo,

    I came across your blog and found it to be a good source of information about Venice. My company publishes an iPhone app consisting of self-guided walking tours in Venice. However, these walking tours were compiled three years ago and some of the information may be out of date. We would like to invite you and your blog readers to review the tour content and give us feedback.

    If you would be willing to post a "Looking for reviews" announcement for us, we will offer you 25 promo codes for our iOS walking tour apps. Each of these is good for a free walking tour iPhone app download, normally priced at US$4.99. We have walking tour apps covering all major cities in the world and you may use the promo codes for whatever purpose you see fit. The bloggers we have worked with before often use the promo codes to host a photo/writing contest or reward readers for making comments to their blog posts.

    For readers who send us useful feedback, we will also offer free promo codes.

    If you are interested, I can send you the proposed announcement for your review. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Best regards,

    Xena Copilova
