This church is lovely and a lot less busy than the Basillica We really wanted to see the crypt but unfortunately it was flooded when we visited however, the paintings and frescos were more than a small compensation

Breathtaking paintings adorn every nook, much prettier than the Basillica and less crowded. Visit the crypt which is flooded and eerily beautiful, go at low tide and it's more accessible, at high tide you can only really catch a glimpse.

Well worth the stroll in the evening after the day tourists have left. Quieter and better restaurants inward away from the water.

Do not miss the vestry and crypt, the only chance to be below floor level in Venice. Superb alterpieces and paintings.

All street vendors should be banned from Campo Zaccaria. It is too beautiful for have it spoiled like many other Campi and Calle in Venice. Normally this square is very quiet and here you will find a wonderful Church to visit. Giovanni Bellini Masterpiece Sacred Conversation is on the left wall about half way up the Church. Sit and enjoy!!!... More

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!!
