The altar painting of this lovely Renaissance church, "Madonna Enthroned with Saints" by Giovanni Bellini, is absolutely breathtaking. If you are, like me, either a longtime or recent fan of Bellini's work, you know that Venice is the place to see a lot of his...More

Unusual decorations inside, with grey color scheme and huge paintings that almost cover the side walls instead of chapels. Pay the custodian 1.5 Euros to go into the old chapels to see gold, a Tintoretto altarpiece, and the remains of the old pavement. From the...More

The exterior of this church is the architectural star. Beautiful Venetian early Renaissance architecture by Codussi. The interior is sadly rather dark and dingy, but it is worth entering because in my opinion, Giovanni Bellini's San Zaccaria Altarpiece is one of the most beautiful paintings...More

The paintings inside are great, particularly the beautifully colored one by Tintoretto ( what a great blue hue). In general, this church and the area in front are quiet places of reflection. Take a break from the crowds and come here and breathe.

This for us was the best church in Venice. We found it exceptionally beautiful and the vault is pretty cool. It was only ruined by a man (Not sure if he was staff or a local intolerant male) who disrespectufully shouted at me for being...More

This was the closest church to our B & B, so in addition to being beautiful, it was a landmark for us that we were close to home.

Not far from St. Mark’s, you will find this lovely church. It is loaded with art. The interior is lighted by beautiful, tall Gothic windows, and the walls are lined with some of the most magnificent works of art found in Venice. Masterpieces by Tintoretto,...More

Free entry. Quiet and reflective place. €1.50 entry to flooded underground crypt. Amazing! No queues either! Lovely escape from a very bustling and crowded St Mark's Square just a few minutes walk away.

Castello is the largest of the six sestieri
(districts), and the only one not facing onto the
Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated
within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over
one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime
neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side
streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals
criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
