Combine a visit to see Canaletto & the Art of Venice at The Queen's Gallery, Edinburgh with a visit to the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the home of Scottish royal history.

The exhibition takes the visitor on a journey from the quayside houses and workshops on the Grand Canal’s upper reaches to the bustling festivities of a regatta and Ascension Day celebrations around St Mark’s Square.  Canaletto brilliantly captures the effects of light on stone and water, and fills each work with a snapshot of Venetian daily life.
