The mosaic floors in this church are incredible. Hundreds of years old, this church is worth a visit! The crystal crucifix is beautiful, but I was totally fixated on the amazing mosaic floor. Be sure to leave a Euro to help with maintaining this gem.

This is a small church on the island in Murano very close to the Glass Museum. It has lovely mosaics and windows and the brickwork is charming.

This is a very beautiful church. It is possibly the oldest church in Venice and the glorious mosaics are stunning.The golden mosaic of the Madonna over the high altar is exceptional.As in all religious buildings there is a dress code protocol.

The floors are just like in San Marco but not covered. You can admire them in their mosaic glory. Entry is free but leave a euro to help with the restoration and upkeep fees.
