A Beauty in a neighborhood in Venice.

Tintoretto's Renaissance paintings everywhere. 3 euro entry for maintenance is well spent. The original sculpture of the Madonna is in the main chapel to the right.

We went to Mass here this morning. Beautiful on the inside and the Priest was just lovely. Walked around to meet the visitors with a big smile. The big surprise was the music - guitar and vocals like a folk mass in the states. Since we couldn't understand much of the liturgy, we admired the art.

This church built sometime after 1355 is dedicated to St. Christopher, the patron Saint of travelers, to protect the boatmen who ferried passengers to the islands in the Northern lagoon. Its current name “Madonna dell Orto or Madonna of the Orchard comes from a statue of the Virgin Mary that was commissioned for a different church in the 15th century,... More

This church is exactly what I love about Vence, it's set in one of the quiet areas, so you go through lots of reasonably empty footways to get there and once you arive you find something absolutely exquisite. The structure is charming, there's a little cloister to one side and it's full of Tintoretto's paintings, as well as his tomb.... More

Many lovely Tintoretto paintings and Tintoretto's tomb. Beautiful church both the exterior and interior. Simple, but warm and welcoming with tones of pink, lots of light, beautiful paintings, nice architecture and a lovely, unusual Madonna and Child sculpture. A bit out of the way but has its own vaporetto stop.

As we boated around Venice, I saw this bell tower and our water taxi captain said he would take me to see it. Venice is where east meets west and most of the towers are western in design like the Campanile San Marco. However, this one is eastern in influence. I also enjoyed seeing the front from the canal.

Madonna dell'Orto (€2.50 per person) is a surprisingly nice church visit in Cannaregio district with some nice artworks to be seen in this quiet area of Venice. Opening Hours 10am to 5pm (as of April 2015). Located in the northern ends of Cannaregio on Campo dell'Orto, this 14th century church has a nice exterior facade and a simple nave populated... More

This church was almost next door to my accommodation so I kept walking past it. Glad I walked in as although not as ornate as some, this assisted the art works and icons to stand out and be appreciated even more. Only 2.50 euro to enter - and a nice 'quiet' from the madness.

This was a nice out of the way church to visit. Since it is not in a high tourist area there are not many people.

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.
