Rather plain on the outside, this church holds a treasure inside - the entire central ceiling is an absolutely beautiful painting. You need to put a coin in the electric meter to get the full lighting on the ceiling, but definitely worth it.

The old saying of not judging a book by it's cover holds true. The builders spend all of their budget on the inside and particularly the ceiling canvas which is excellent and as good, if not better, than many I've seen around the world -...More

It looks so plain on the outside, but once you get in, and through in a coin to illuminate the ceiling you will be stunned to see the most amazing painting. go there, since it will probably close (maybe for longer) in January 2019. The...More

We had a walking tour that met on the steps here so we did go inside. It is OK but compares to other churches is really a wast of time.

Walk in but DON'T look up. Take a seat... and then look up. Prepare to be blown away. Be aware photos are not allowed so be respectful. It's worth it

sorry to copy a previous reviewer's title, but this sums it up perfectly. The very plain exterior hides a truly remarkable ceiling. It takes a moment to walk through the door and look up, but you will be captivated. The artist has skillfully used perspective...More

Dorsoduro / Accademia
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

The church is open all day but avoid the times when church services are on. Have some change ready for the light machines. Enjoy!
