I sat on the edge of the fountain a read a book for a bit in the nice weather. On one of the corners of this square you there is a little shop where you can buy really affordable bottles of wine or Bellini.

Take a minute and stop by this church. A crypt and mummy were a must see for my teenager. Me - the art work and the feel of the church were amazing. I will go here again when in Venice!!

I cannot tell you if it s more fantastic the facade of the church, or the square it looks in! Just one minute far from a place where they sell the most useless,objects of the world, souvenirs made in china that has nothing to do with venice and that look so cheap that buying them means to punish ourselves!

I just happened upon this beautiful church while I was walking around Venice going in & out of shops. At first, I wasn't sure what it was or if it was open to the public. It is stunning!! In my opinion, it is more beautiful than St. Mark's Basilica. The paintings are breathtaking. Don't miss this experience.

San Zaccaria is a church but for an art lover it's also a gallery of old masters in an authentic space. The walls are literally COVERED with good paintings. One of the best paintings by Giovanni Bellini is to be found on the left wall (Sacra conversazione). A small fee enables you to visit the sacristy with other paintings and... More

This is convenient to the vaporetto stop of the same name. The church is more lovely than expected. But, the real surprise with the crypt in the basement. It was partially submerged under water and made a really interesting experience, and great photo op.

The Basilica might be handing out shawls, but not the smaller churches, and they aren't kidding about the strict dress code in the guide books. Wasn't in here for a minute before the curator asked me to cover up, as I was wearing a sleeveless dress. Now I understand why they sell scarves in Piazza San Marco even in the... More

We just bumped into this cathedral accidentally and are so glad we did! :) It became my favorite cathedral in Venice!! Why? Well, if you look at the paintings/mosaics in most cathedrals, Jesus/God are portrayed as very worthy of respect, but also as rather unapproachable (too high and holy). This church shows a more approachable, personal Jesus. When entering the... More

This is a wonderful, free entry church with hidden treasures and a magnificent façade in a quiet square immediate off the Riva degli Schiavona. Just look for Hotel Savoia and Jolanda and pass through the Sortoportego passageway immediately to the right of the hotel entrance. It is well worth paying the 50 cents in a slot on the right hand...
