Palazzo Franchetti

Palazzo Franchetti is an important building on the Grand Canal close to the Accademia bridge.  It now houses the Venetian Institute of Science and Letters, Instituto Venezia di Scienze, Lettere e Arti and hosts academic conferences, exhibitions and cultural events.  It has an amazing staircase, nice garden and café.  The exhibitions vary, but even if the exhibitions are a bit niche or ultra contemporary, it is worth visiting to view the palazzo itself.
