San Sebastiano is an architectural gem in a quiet part of Dorsoduro, not far from Venice's main bus and train stations. There is a small admission fee and information sheets in various languages guide you around the works of art, of which there are many. If you only visit one church during your trip to Venice, this one is worth... More

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.

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.

Lovely church, which we visited in a bit of a hurry! We went to see the majolica glass floor in one of the chapels, but (fortunately and unfortunately) it had been taken up for refurbishment. 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.

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