We walked here through some of less well tourist trodden streets and were rewarded on route by tiny bars serving all manner of tasty snacks, amazing hot chocolate and peach preseco. The paintings by Tintoretto were the reason for our pilgrimage and we were not disappointed. It was his local parish church and has some astounding paintings, do visit and... More

the church in Cannareggio is very nice. There are interesting art works inside like Tantorettto and the area is lovely. If you are in Cannareggio take a look to Madonna dell'Orto!

Came in out of curiosity and was stunned by the beauty of this church. The richness of the art inside is truly amazing, I doubt that there is any church that can show such splendor and if you are in Venice this is a must see. Spoke with the priest, and find out that all art was given by old... More

This red brick marvel is well worth the walk through uncrowded streets. It is home to many Tintoretto paintings which are described in the free guide (just a single sheet photocopy but useful). Other guides are available to purchase. Whether you're into art or use the church as a point to head to for a walk away from the crowds,... More

Both the exterior and interior of this church are unusual for Venice, with its red brick facade and flat wood ceiling. It's look is unremarkable, but what it lacks in beauty it makes up for in history. This is the final resting place of the painter Tintoretto (the guy whose work you've seen in pretty much every church in Venice).... More

We stayed at a hotel in the Cannaregio area - which in itself is a very charming area to stay at. If you do stay there, you must certainly not miss visiting this church - which happens to be the parish church of the famous painter Tintoretto. Here you can find a number of his famous paintings displayed in-situ, which... More

Not overly decorated with rococo and overburdened with "over the top" Venetian art -- unlike many churches in Venice. It has a plain simplicity that is charming and more importantly, old ladies and nuns go to worship there in the mornings so it is a working church (not just an art museum, parading as a church, but devoid of actual...

There are rare paintings and and the painter Tintoretto is baried here. If you are a fan of this painter, you have to visit this church where his best work is hanging on its walls.

We stepped in here to take a quiet moment and see the paintings. I agree with another reviewer who said the paintings weren't well-lit and were therefor hard to see. You can still get a basic appreciation for them, though. Unfortunately they don't allow people to go up into the tower. That would have been amazing. A nice place to... More

The link to the Tintoretto family is clear, with impressive artworks dotted liberally around the walls of this large church. Good for a half-hour's gentle, peaceful browse.

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
Cannaregio
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighborhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
