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.

Found this church by accident wandering around near our hotel. My wife and I were the only visitors so we felt compelled to linger at the simple beauty of the church and it's wonderful art. A highlight our trip.

Once I'd got over my personal objection to paying to enter a church, this was fascinating. My wife studied Tintoretto as part of one of her degrees and so this place was a must-see location. The altar-pieces were vast and incredible creations.

Not as impressive as some churches in Venice , but well worth a visit to see the Tintorettos and the famous statue of the madonna .

The church's ornate brick facade is quite impressive. The interior feels a bit sparse. There is some art, and we found Tintoretto's tomb to be of note.

Local small and quaint church that is worth a visit. Built in 1365, got burned and rebuilt again, but always kept its old charm. A small entrance fee of only 2 euros, in January 2015 and worth every penny. The artist that painted many of the drawings that hang in the church is also buried there. Worthy of a visit.

This large building houses the famous statue of the Madonna in a side chapel, set apart for prayer and contemplation. There are also several wonderful paintings in the main church and the hike out is well rewarded.

Whilst it isn't the most attractive church in Venice, it is worth a visit to see the artwork that adorns its walls.

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.
