Discover the Palace

Palazzo Zaguri has been the seat of some of the most prestigious Venetian families over the centuries.
It is located in the central Campo San Maurizio, on the route that leads from the Gallerie dell’Accademia to Piazza San Marco. The entire building was the subject of an important two-year conservation restoration project, which led to the creation of one of the most extraordinary permanent private museum sites in Venice.
