Palazzo Ca' Zenobio - A gilded 1690 palace that formerly housed a school for Venice’s Armenian community recently opened its doors to visitors, who may recognise its frescoed, mirrored salon as the setting for Madonna's 1984 'Like a Virgin' video. The palace’s trompe l’oeil frescos ceilings by Louis Dorigny are splendid, and its overgrown formal garden among Venice’s largest and loveliest.
