Palazzo Barbaro

Palazzo Barbaro with the Accademia bridge in the background. Between the bridge and this gothic palazzo appear the gardens of the Palazzo Franchetti Cavalli.

The Curtis family from Boston, Massachusetts, brought the palazzo in 1885. Henry James wrote the Aspern Papers here, and Robert Browning wrote some of his poems here as well.
