She stands opposite the main part of city guarding the entrance to the Grand Canal. The outside is stunning and you must study its lines and magnificence. The inside is not as spectacular but again take time to look and engage with the history held within the space.

When you visit the Church of Santa Maria della Salute don't miss out to visit the sacristy. There you find some beautiful paintings by a young Titian and also a most interesting depiction of the Wedding at Cana by Tintoretto. When viewing this painting start at one end and slowly move to the other side. Look at what happens to... More

The church is closed between noon and 1500 and best visited after lunch. The Sacristy is where the Tintorettos are and well worth the €3 entrance.

I also visited the sacristy and by doing so you could receive a discounted ticket for the Seminary art exhibit next door. That was very well worth it because both venues are small, and there was almost no one else in them. The art is that which has been saved from being moved from Venice and includes some very old...

This iconic building is situated just across theGrandCanal from St Marks square. I am sure every visitor has photographed it! You can take a water taxi or just stroll across the academia bridge. Watch out for the smartly dressed beggar who tries to make you pay an entrance fee to enter. The church does have a sign above the door... More

Its hard not to get a culture overload with all of the beautiful architecture in Venice but its definitely worth the short Vaperetto trip across the Canal from St Marks to see this beautiful church.

Best from outside and famous landmark. Was right next to our accommodation. Inside not as amazing as we expected. All the glory is on the outside of building.
