Found on the Grand Canal, not far from the vaporetto stop San Stae, is Ca’ Pesaro, a project of the Venetian architect Baldassarre Longhena. It was built in the second half of the 17th century, for the Pesaro family. It now houses the Gallery of Modern Art, and is one of the museums included on the very reasonably priced combined museums pass.
No photos are allowed within the museum, but the courtyard and canal views were worth recording. (And, if you like modern art, you won’t be disappointed.)
The courtyard with its pavement, a central vera da pozzo, and two other well heads set against a wall:
