A massive church, so big it's like being outdoors even when you're inside. Located in a very interesting part of Venice, great to wander around and explore. The piazza to the right of the church outside has some great restaurants too. We went there for a concert (Harrow Young Musicians) and is was a truly impressive place to hear music.

We called in here on a walking tour. We were the only small group there and I don't think there was a fee.....it was lovely inside, however I liked the outside of the building better and many beautiful buildings around it.

My pre-travel notes for this church simply said: a stupid-huge amount of art. This is only the tip of the iceberg. This massive building -- it feels bigger than San Marco! -- is a plain brick inside except for all these great chapels and ossuaries climbing the walls. I was there briefly before closing and the person at the entrance... More

A lot of fantastic Ducal tombs are now here, but it is worth reading up on some of the context before you go so that you know what you're looking at.

As others have commented there weren't the queues and besides our group there were hardly any others in this church. The views from outside were great and this church was definitely worth a trip, including this on our discovery around and about in Venice.

15 minutes from St Marcos and next to the Ospedale. This square is a great area to escape the crowds. Take time to sit and people watch whilst eating a pastry or delicious ice-cream from Rosa Salvos. Pizzeria 8234 is wonderful for fresh pasta and great service. The back of the ospidale is also stunning. You can catch a gondola... More

I would recommend paying this church a short visit. It has pretty interisiting indoors but if you aren't really into historical stuff you can only look inside without paying anything.

My friend and I went to the top of the tower and got a great view of Saint Mark's from across the water. It was easy to get there and totally worth it.

This is a big place with a lot of very nice art and sculpture, some of it as monuments. Well worth the visit. I was very pleased we decided to go there and not to miss it. We were there an hour and we were hurrying so that we would end up at Madonna Dell Orto before closing. We could... 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.
