Lonely Planet review
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. Head upstairs to see Banca Intesa’s superb collection of 400 Russian icons, gorgeously spotlit in darkened galleries in which recordings of soft Gregorian chants set the scene.
