Royal rooms at the Correr Museum
From July 15th 2022 a new itinerary opens at the Correr Museum in Venice.
The Royal Palace, one of Venice’s most exceptional and representative centres of 19th-century political and cultural history, is being returned to the city, thus restoring the Marciana area to its original identity. After a long and meticulous restoration work, the public will be able to visit twenty rooms of Venice’s Royal Palace located inside the Museo Correr. Throughout the 19th century and up until 1920 these were the original private apartments of the members of three ruling dynasties: the House of Bonaparte, Habsburg and Savoy.
The restoration marks the completion of work begun in the year 2000, based on a scientific project directed by Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia and the Venice City Council, supported by the Superintendency and with the invaluable contribution of the French Committee for the Preservation of Venice and patrons from around the world.
The renovated rooms are all decorated, and for the most part sumptuously adorned with tapestries reproduced in the original designs. Moreover, after a succession of complications and relocations, the original furniture from the Royal Palace has finally returned to take its proper place.
Visits only upon prior booking, with specialized guide, for a maximum of 10 people. Languages: Italian, English, French. Information and Bookings at the Museo Correr Ticket Office Desk.
