Visited yesterday. Previous reviews are accurate. I'll add: open only 10-12 & 4-6, so plan accordingly. Also the access to the crypt (which is usually under a couple inches of water but there's a walkway) and the chapel with marvelous paintings costs 1.5 euro and is well worth it. The Bellini altarpiece in the main church is stunning. Don't miss.

No where near as crowded as many of the spots in and around San Marco It was also shaded and cool We spent 20 minutes in there taking in the artwork and the comparable silence!

Another stunning Chiesa, spacious piazza, just a step away from San Marco square, close to the San Marco vaporetto stops. Another place to check for sure, with a special meaning to my family so couldn't miss it!

We stop at San Zaccaria since it is open earlier than some other churches and is supposed to hold some interesting art. We are not disappointed. Giovanni Bellini’s Madonna and Four Saints over the second altar on the left is very beautiful. For 1.5E we gain entrance to the crypt area, a worthwhile investment. Here many doges are entombed and... More

San Zaccaria is Much less Touristy than San Marco. It is in a lovely Campo Nat far from San Marco. It has some beautiful paintings by Bellini.

I cannot sufficiently emphasize the quantity of paintings in this place. Almost every inch of the walls is covered. The outside is pretty enough, but the inside is fabulous. I love the deep and soft reds of older paintings. The color is close to red clay both before and after firing -depending on the painting-.

We visited this church early in the morning, when it wasn't full of tourists so we were able to fully enjoy its beauties. make sure to pay the extra fee of 3 euro to visit the museum. Like all churches from Venice, this also bursts with amazing paintings and statues.

Slightly tucked away but not far from the main Canal this is a lovely church in a Square. Quiet and calm almost a retreat from the busy Tourist Trail. Seen 2014

Couldn't go in this church as it always seemed to be closed but the facade was worth stopping by alone very ornate and beautiful!

Staying in Castello

Neighbourhood Profile
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 strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.
