Looking for a place to explore in a day? Try out the Ca d Zan, it has been refurbished and the original furniture still remains. The home is 4 levels high and is 22,000 square feet in size. The regular admission of $20 will get you into the first two floors, you have to pay another $20 to see floors 3 and 4. While I recommend the general admission price, I did not feel the extra $20 was worth seeing a couple more bedrooms and the terrace that sits atop the house.
The mansion sits on the edge of the water on 66 acres. John and Mable Ringling built this home in 1924 and when you tour the home you will see they spared no expense. Marble is all throughout the home and gold leaf on the ceilings. They travelled through Europe collecting furniture and art and was decorated in the Venetian Gothic style.
It certainly is worth the trip to view this beautiful mansion.
