- Carlo Goldoni, renowned author of such 18th-century plays as The Persian Wife and The Obstinate Women, was born and raised in this humble abode. Now part of a network of historical museums, the 15th-century structure stands as a testament to the craftsmanship of the era - a true-blue model of Venetian Gothic. Inside, exhibits and displays tell the tale of Goldoni's life and times, and celebrate the epic themes with which he toyed. Whether you're a rabid Goldoni fan or just a lover of striking architecture, this will be a satisfying experience. See website for seasonal hours and info on associated museums.
