San Zaccaria is one of the most photographed buildings in Venice. The incredible art displayed on the church walls between large Gothic windows includes work by Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo, Palma the Elder, Antonio Balestra, Giovanni Bellini, Giuseppe Salviati, Titoretto, Angelo Trevisani and Van Dyck. The highlight of this church's art work is Bellini's painting of Madonna with Child created in... More

There is amazing art inside this church with an amazing history. If I remember correctly it is free to enter. It is also set in a lovely open square near some great little bars.

It was on the list and nearby so we walked over and zipped through. In Venice it is mostly art and churches. We were there for two days so see looked at what there was to see.

San Zaccaria (free entry) is a neat little church located on a small piazza by the same name, east of Piazza San Marco by 5 minutes walk. Here you can find masterpieces by the likes of Bellini and enjoy the nice blend of Gothic and Early Renaissance architecture, design and art. Opening hours are 10-12pm and 4-6pm (as of March...

We happened into this church just as their regularly 6:30p.m. Liturgy was about to commence. The priest delivered a moving sermon about readiness of Mary to serve (Fiat voluntas...) and how we too need to stand ready to pick up our tasks for the Lord. A lovely and vibrant church with devoted parishoners.

We found this church by wandering around. What I really enjoyed was that it didn't seem to generate much of the interest of the mobs of people in St. Mark's Square or on their way to the Rialto Bridge. So, it was nice and quiet and very pretty, not grand but still a beautiful structure inside and out. Would I... More

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.
