This is one of my favorite churches in Venice. Lovely marble on the outside, cupolas on top, right by a canal [and a little square with shops and restaurant] and the inside is gorgeous. Note especially the blue ceiling.

This small church, only a few minutes from the Rialto Bridge, and one of the 16 covered by the Venice Church Pass, is particularly simple, beautiful, and unusual. It was recommended to us by a local who was quite right in suggesting we would find it remarkable.

Just a little gem. A must see when having some time for visiting less popular spots in Venice. A small early renaissance building with an excellend marble exterior. Delicate, sort of fragile and really breathtaking.

Catch this church in the evening. Its marble exteriors are beautifully illuminated. Its interiors are exquisite, too. A "little"church, by Venetian standards, but beautifully crafted marble interiors!

My husband and I were lucky enough to pass this little church on our way back to our hotel after dinner one evening. We heard music and went inside to find a concert taking place. The performers were school children from England who were singing in Italian. It was truly magical to hear such a beautiful sound in such a... More

This church hovers on that fine line between exquisite and over-the-top bling. Interesting and pretty in a fairy princess sort of way, but lacking some of the grandeur and/or humanity of some of Venice's (many) other churches.

Hard to find but well worth the search - the church is amazing - we were also lucky enough to go to a concert by a school from Liverpool which was one of those magical moments

We were a group of 4 women who visited this museum together.We all enjoyed it ,although as I have a special interest in textiles and fashion perhaps I got most out of it.However we all agreed that it gave a real feel of what it may have been like to live in a mansion in days gone by.Of particular interest...

Perhap the idea of rainbow marble invoked a magical image but we didn't find this church that unique. The marble was still mostly pink , grey and yellow and not much more spectacular than many churches we'd seen.

Santa Maria dei Miracoli is hands-down the most beautiful church in Venice. The phrase most commonly used to describe it is "a jewel box," and that is exactly what it is like - small, decorated only with different shades of marble, with a barrel-vaulted gilt coffered ceiling. The exterior has recently been restored and looks splendid - exquisite early-Renaissance Venetian... More
