Casanova Museum & Experience

Evoking the life and times of Giacomo C.

Palazzo Pesara Papava

This museum, dedicated to Venice's favourite lover, rascal, adventurer and bon vivant Giacomo Casanova opened in 2018 in the 15th-century Ca' Pesaro Papafava on the Canale della Misericordia. Using multimedia and virtual reality, it evokes the many sides to Casanova: his travels, his childhood and escapades in Venice, his seductions and scholarly accomplishments and his witty chronicle of 18th-century high life; it also covers the numerous films based on his life over the years.
