Lots of interesting art. Well worth visiting the museum and looking at the foundations. Has a Tiepolo.

We came here to see the flooded crypt and it was definitely worth it. It's not that big but it's cool to walk thorough water and see the church from an unusual perspective. If you're closeby, feel free to take a visit!

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

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.

Castello is the largest of the six sestieri

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
