All reviews beautiful church virgin mary grand canal light a candle free admission worth a visit peggy guggenheim collection st marks vaporetto stop mark's square water bus plague sacristy basilica deliverance organ dorsoduro
...in shape and full of enormous paintings, chandeliers. Set on the point of Dorsoduro in remembrance of salvation from the plague and commanding the entrance to the Grand Canal. Choc full of Tintoretto and Titians
Forget about waiting half a day to go inside San Marco and go by vaporetto to this church instead. It's huge, beautiful, and most of all, it's peaceful and quiet, less a tourist trap and more a church.
Aside from the beautiful architecture of the Church- don't forget to visit the Sacristy (closes at 5 pm -i think). The Church is free but there is a charge to see the works of art in the Sacristy. turn Left from the main entrance and...More
They say the Doge built the Salute so that everyone would know the power and beauty of Venice. I believe it -- my sunset photo coming into Venice with the light behind the Salute is one of the most beautiful sites I've seen. The beauty...More
So many people lined up to get into St Marks Basilica and the square so crowded, we decided to go for something smaller on Dosorduro. A very beautiful place, we arrived and had just enough time to walk around before they closed. A chance to...More
The Basillica is open between 9-12am and then again 3-5pm officially. However, they opened the doors before 3pm for people to go inside when we went. Very quiet area unlike St Mark's maybe because it is difficult to find on foot. We were very glad...More
We encountered Salute in between a visit to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection and the Damien Hirst show at the Punta della Dogana. If we had had more time, we would have spent some time at this marvelous basilica. But as it was, it was nice...More
The architecture of this church is very interesting. The altar is very beautiful with many amazing sacred images. There is a great chandelier in the center of the church. The facade is wonderful and the surroundings are fantastic. This is one of the unmissable attractions...More
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.

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 journey fare is €7.50 no matter if it is only one stop. Better to spend €20 for a day pass which you can use as often as you want to get round. Better still to walk.
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
