Isn’t this Basilica absolutely beautiful? A good example of Baroque and inside the simple structure. Inside of course, as we are in Venice, paintings of Titian and Giordano and the omnipresent Tintoretto. After few days in Venice you become so blaze’ of painters as they...More

A short walk away from SanMarco in a scenic location away from the busy hustle and bustle of San Marco. Architecture is exceptional and unmissable.

This an octagonal (functionally, almost round) church with soaring verticals. Kids love going around—more than once. The church also has an interesting story. Start here, walk easily to the Guggenheim, come back here to the vaporetto—it’s easy! But BEWARE and check the hours here. This...More

Coming from Tuscany and seeing many churches of the same shape and theme, walking into Santa Maria della Salute was like opening my eyes again. It was so different from all the other churches I have seen, and is plainly decorated, yet richly adorned with...More

From almost anywhere in Venice you can see the Salute. It's large dome dominates the skyline and reminds you that you are in Venezia! Take the Vaporetto over to Dorsodoro and walk along the canal and take in the view. The outside of the Salute...More

It is located across the Grand Canal from St Mark's Square, but we chose to walk here. It was tricky and we got lost a few times, but well worth it. It is so much fun getting lost in Venice if you have the right...More

It's not quite along the beaten path, but worth the extra, out of the way steps to visit. (Or, to make it easy, just take a gondola or water taxi.) Beautiful building, magnificent paintings.

The best view of this church is from the Grand Canal. It is quite impressive right next to the water. This church had a beautiful interior, well lit and spacious. There was also an extra charge to see the Treasury, which was definitely worth it.

Unless you buy a vaporetto pass for a day it will be expensive. Simply walk up to the Accademia Bridge and into Campo Santo Stefano and the Piazza is straight ahead. It will take you between 15 to 20 minutes maximum.A single... More

You probably will have to ask when you arrive at the closest church you find. We even hard a time finding a Saturday night mass time. There are so many churches in Venice that most do not even have any mass service yet alone... More
