Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Veneto / Province of Venice / City of Venice / Venice / Palazzo Labia
Palazzo Labia is a baroque palace in Venice, Italy. Built in the 17th–18th century, it is one of the last great palazzi of Venice. Little known outside of Italy, it is most notable for the remarkable frescoed ballroom painted 1746–47 by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, with decorative works in trompe-l'œil by Gerolamo Mengozzi-Colonna.It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Palazzo Labia and many more Venice attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Venice trip planner.
In a city often likened to a cardboard film set, the Palazzo is unusual by having not only a formal front along the Grand Canal, but also a visible and formal facade at its rear, and decorated side as well, along the Cannaregio Canal. In Venice, such design is very rare. The palazzo was designed by the architect Andrea Cominelli (by Alessandro Tremignon according to others), the principal facade is on the Cannaregio Canal; a lesser three bayed facade faces the Grand Canal. A later facade probably designed by Giorgio Massari is approached from the Campo San Geremia.

Beautiful palace, originally from about 1646, built for the rich Spanish family of Labia who were famous over the centuries for their lavish feasts. Even after them, the subsequent owners continued in this "tradition"... it remains famous a party of the 50s in which were present the Dukes of Windsor, the Agha Khan, Pierre Cardin, Christian Dior and many crowned heads. The tapestries of Tiepolo in the ballroom are beautiful. Today it is the RAI regional headquarters.
