NileGuide Expert Says:
You may notice similarities in design and lines (ie. the columned arch with clover like designs on top) used between the Ca D’Oro and the Palazzo Ducale, as the very same architects (Giovanni Bon and his son Bartolomeo Bon) were used for both!
- Being one of the most beautifully stunning houses on the Grande Canal, the Ca'd'Oro is a fine representation of Gothic-Venetian architecture in Venice. With the clover shaped eyelets atop the numerous columns, the Ca'd'Oro screams to be photographed when passing by on vaparetto (waterbus), water-taxi, or gonodola on the Grande Canal. Located just north of the Rialto Bridge, unfortunately this private house and not open to the public, but still deserves admiration at a distance for its exquisite beauty.
