Anniversary Trip

This was a worthwhile visit for the astounding Architecture and its setting, only worth a quick look around though not a long visit for this one.

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

Make sure you pay the small entrance fee to visit the small chapel with wonderful altarpieces, frescoes and the crypt. Really interesting and written guides in 4 languages. Custodian really friendly and took great pride in the church and its art.

Covered wall to wall with masterpiece paintings. The highlight is a late work by Bellini after whom the cocktail is named. Just experience the visual feast of architecture and art. No wonder Elton John named his adopted child after this church. The west façade is just a breath taking piece of 15th century work. Enjoy! Have a look at the... More

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.

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.
