Venice's main university is located in this extraordinary 15th century building, sitting on the widest curve of the Grand Canal. Hour-long tours, led by students, take place throughout the week (book via the website) and take you around the site and into the Aula Baratto, designed in the 1930s by celebrated architect Carlo Scarpa, which has astonishing views of the Grand Canal, sweeping from the Accademia Bridge to Rialto. Visit on a Saturday, and the tour also includes the neighboring Ca' Dolfin.
