My favourite in Venice

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.

Another huge church and built to say thank you for soaring some from the plague. How all these great churches were built never ceases to amaze me.

This large, iconic building affords many fine photographic opportunities, situated as it is near the head of the Grand Canal. It was built to give thanks for the end of an outbreak of plague which had killed a third of the population, and completed in 1687.

I think this is my favorite exterior of all the churches/basilicas in Venice...and often a string quartet will be playing Vivaldi one the pavement near the water in the fine weather. Just sit on the steps and take it all in!
