We walked to this outlying church as part of exploring the Jewish Quarter. The Church has its own suntrap courtyard and imposing, but relatively plain frontage compared to some churches in Venice. The main attraction of this church is the paintings they have by Tintoretto, who used to live nearby. So this is a place for art lovers. Large and... More

The Madonna dell' Orto Church is steeped in history. There are several stunning Tintoretto paintings inside, and a wonderful statue of the Madonna.. The artist Tintoretto died in 1594 and was buried in this Church next to his Wife and Daughter. If you enjoy looking at things of beauty in peace and quiet, this is definitely the place to wander...

A truly beautiful place and a definite must see when visiting Venice. This is one that sometimes gets overlooked, but shouldn't as its stunning.

Italy is full of beautiful churches and this is one of them. It is not as famous as some of the other local churches. Nevertheless, we stumbled upon it during a walk, and were pleasantly surprised by what we found. It was beautiful, with its own charm, and not overrun with tourists. A very nice church you could visit quietly... More

Surprise free activity. This church had a free concert on a Sunday evening which lasted over an hour. They also gave us a free medal to remember this special place. We were one of a few tourists here with all locals which made it s very unique experience and best of all it was free.

Not the easiest place to get to and probably oversold in the guide books but I am glad to have made the effort. Many little treasures to be found including the Madonna.

Apparently this church has paintings of great merit BUT they are so poorly lit that it is impossible to appreciate them. The charge of 3 euros per person seemed uncalled for since we had already paid for a Chorus pass to see the churches of Venice. The person at the desk was dismissive, seemed bored out of her mind, never... More

Wonderful church with several Tintorettos. He is buried here in his parish church with only a modest plaque, unlike the pompous Canova monument for eg. Atmospheric area to explore as well.

Don't be put off by the plain exterior of this church, because inside it is wonderful and bright, with paintings and the usual Italian alters

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
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.
