Gallerie di Palazzo Leoni Montanari information
From the outside it looks like a bank, but a treasure beyond accountants’ imagining awaits inside the Palazzo Leoni Montanari. Ascend past the nymphs along the extravagant stuccoed staircase to grand salons filled with Canaletto’s misty lagoon landscapes and Pietro Longhi's 18th-century satires.
