My favourite church in Venice. Great location tucked away. Simple layout and a it feels 'alive and used', not just a damp cold trap for tourists. The real draw for me is the Bellini. Second painting on the left hand side, it's arresting. Put the 0.50 in the slot to turn on the lights and "pow", the colour exploded into... More

This 15th century monastic church was commenced by the architect Antonio Gambello in 1458. The pictures displayed in trip advisor reviews indicate it is worth a visit although there are 120 churches in the city of Venice so one can get a bit churched out. It contains 17th/18th century works of art of a good standard. It is relatively easy... More

This church was such a beautiful place my wife and I were sorry we didn't go in sooner. If you get a chance this is definitely a must see in Venice. The art work the wood carving the painting and architecture were just beautiful and well kept. We also had a chance to meet with the preast after mass and... More

The church is very tranquil. As compared to the neighbourhood, there are far less visitors here. But don't miss out on this place. It is worth paying 1.50 euro per person to go inside the choir chapel and the crypt. The paintings inside are more visible as it is more brightly lit compared to outside.

The most impressive Bellini portrait Madonna & baby Jesus. So beautiful. Closed from 1:00 until 4:00. But do take the time to see this lovely small church. Really worth it!

During the Biennale the church is made over as an art gallery. The displays were startling and free! Great fun.

you will find this church close to the Campo San Zaccaria, just off the waterfront to the southeast of Piazza San Marco and St. Mark's Basilica. Nearly every wall is covered with paintings by 17th and 18th century artists. The most famous one it Bellini's altarpiece. Antonio Gambello was the original architect who started the building in the Gothic style,... More

Beautiful church! Very simple interior. Make sure to go down to the crypt of Zaccaria and be prepared to get your feet wet. Difficult to photograph but worth the visit. Erie and peaceful at the same time.

A surprise inside blue columns, master works. A place where you feel what religion means positively. Cherry on the cake, not too many tourists. Check into your guide book the opening Hours.

San Zaccaria is a church in Venice, northern Italy, dedicated to Saint Zechariah. It is a large edifice, located in the quiet Campo San Zaccaria, just off the waterfront to the south east of St. Mark's basilica. Must see.

Staying in Castello

Neighborhood Profile
Castello
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighborhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.
