One of the city’s newest attractions pays homage to one of its most famous sons, Giacomo Casanova (1725–1798). The absorbing, interactive exhibition features information boards and multimedia installations, set in the otherwise bare rooms of the Palazzo Pesaro Papafava (you get a headset that wirelessly translates the audio in each room as you enter). The first section covers aspects of Casanova’s exceptionally varied life as adventurer, writer, diplomat, and spy, though his more infamous role as seducer and libertine gets most attention. In one segment you even don headgear for a virtual reality jaunt through 18th-century Venice. Other rooms add context to the fashions and popular parlor games of the time (Casanova claimed to have mastered at least 22).
