Ahead you will see a huge palace, darkened by the passing of time; this is Palazzo Grimani, currently home to the city’s Court of Appeal and once residence of the doge Marino Grimani in the 16th century. The main façade is still the one that gives onto the Grand Canal, and the palace is striking because of its elegance, so much so that the art historian Ruskin called it “the noblest of all Venetian palaces”.
