At the far end of the Zattere is this lovely church that is designed a bit differently than most. The symmetrical columns up and down either side are quite striking. Truly a beautiful and worthwhile church to visit but I am hard pressed to find a church in Venice that isn't worthwhile.

This is a very attractive little church well off the beaten path in Dorsoduro, so it is relatively quiet and not too many tourists. There is a vaporetto stop close by, San Basilio, line #2. The church is currently under renovation and the art looks wonderful--they are doing a great job! The church was the parish church of Veronese, and... More

This church is being restored over decades by Save Venice, Inc. The ceiling in particular is amazing, as is the little chapel to the left rear of the building. As it is still under restoration, the church seems partially finished. However, it is one of the great monuments of Venice - not to be missed.

However, there was a chapel/sacristy with many veronese paintings depicting various biblical scenes and the organ had beautifully painted shutters, which was quite unusual for... More

The Church of San Sebastiano could renew one's religious belief and ardor to be closer to the Heavenly God! Entering it gives a unique experience of reliving the past. . . . how to be a Christian in those days. The solemnity of the place can always make the visit in a very personal mode to be closer to God.

Looking as many churches are in Venice, this has to be one of the star attractions. All be it that Veronese painted many of the pictures when living close by. the ceiling takes your breath away. the first time i have ever seen an organ with painted doors. painted in such a way as to tell you a story. the...

It's in a part of the city that seems more real and less touristy
