PALAZZO CA’ VENDRAMIN CALERGI
Palazzo Ca’ Vendramin Calergi, considered to be one of the most elegant examples of the Venetian Renaissance on the Grand Canal, is the seat of Casinò di Venezia.
This unique setting was built by Mauro Codussi at the end of the 15th century (the construction was completed in 1509). Once a stately home, it takes on one of the owners’ names, Vittorio Calergi, and from its successors, the Vendramin family. The charm of the building was recognised by famous personalities such as Gabriele d’Annunzio and the musician Richard Wagner. In 1882, the composer was given hospitality in the mezzanine floor of the white wing where he worked on the “Parsifal” score until his death. In these rooms you can visit today the Wagner Museum, where unique documents, posters, arrangements, authentic letters and other relics are exposed.
CASINO’ DI VENEZIA
In the 1950s the Casinò established his heart here after having moved from the original venue situated in Lido di Venezia, which is now closed.
This sophisticated theatre of the most classic games is one of the rare buildings overlooking the Grand Canal having a garden and direct water access. It offers truly unique forms of entertainment. Inside it is possible to find tables dedicated to Roulette games, traditional card games as well as the most spectacular slot machines. To make your day even more special you can dine at the renowned Wagner Restaurant, which occupies the colourful rooms of the Palazzo, the Functions Room on the main floor and the magical garden overlooking the Grand Canal.
