We walked around Venice and especially made a point of stopping at this magnificent Basilica just to see the alter piece of Titian , The assumption of the Virgin which is amazing. Titian himself is buried here

I love the interior of this church. It is full of interesting things and has a lovely atmosphere. I never fail to visit when I am in Venice.
