Madonna Dell Orto is famed for 30 years of major works by Tintoretto and its statue of the Virgin Mary recovered from the vegetable garden from which the church gets its name. The outside is far from grand: inside, its simplicity of form and lack of decoration makes for a peaceful and uncomplicated setting for Tintoretto’s work. It’s close to... More

The brick path in front of the church, like most of Venice used to be long time ago, the calm of the area and a marvellous Madonna by Bellini stolen by somebody that should go to hell (!), this church still with other fantastic paintings has a wooden ceiling that worth the visit. But why people go in venice to... More

A stunning building in and out1 It is well worth attending a service even if you do not speak Italian. Stay next door in the Monastery for a well priced, comfortable family sized room (they even supplied a cot).

Really loved Tintoretto paintings. Visit was cut short due a funeral that was scheduled about 45 minutes after our arrival, but what we saw was magnificent.

If you have time to kill of course visit this place. Has a nice square in front - great for picture taking and photography.The Italian painter Tintoretto has a great collection of works here. Of course, I had no clue who that is. The Boscolo Palace hotel is next door and one can enjoy a classy meal here - the... More

This church was only on our list "to visit" as it was next to our hotel in the Cannaregio district, but it turned out to be our favorite in Venice. It is still a church that has an active parish, but with all the history of 14th century church. The art work includes works by Tintoretto, Bellini, and Molinari. Tintoretto... More

Just another church between scores of churches in Venice.Situated in Cannaregio,the northern sestiere(neighbourhoud).A brick facade with many statues.The main attraction:you can find some Tintoretto paintings inside.Also,the church is the burial place for the artist. Not the most beautiful church in Venice.

As with many of the sites I eagerly searched for in Venice, only after giving up on finding it and admitting I was completely lost did I happen across it. I recommend not stressing out with too strict of an itinerary because you can spend many happy hours just wandering around lost without a clue where you are but enjoying... More

We started off our day by walking through the streets of Venice and stumbled upon this beautiful church. We didn't wind up going inside, but we did stay to soak in the beauty of the church!
