Expert Tip. Ca' d'Oro (correctly Palazzo Santa Sofia), one kilometer from the hotel, is one of the most beautiful palazzos on the Grand Canal in Venice. One of the older palazzos, it has always been known as Ca' d'Oro (golden house) due to the gilt and polychrome external decorations which once adorned its walls. Following extensive restoration to its former glory (including the reconstruction of the stairway), the palazzo is now open to the public as a gallery.
