This small church alone could justify a trip to Venice for an architecture fan. You come upon it by surprise even when you're looking for it. (The truth is that in Venice I'm surprised whenever I find anyplace I'm looking for). It is adjacent to a beautiful campo, Sta. Maria Nuova. When you're there, take a look at a great... More

this church is nicknamed the jewel box because it looks so exquisite and beautiful. the stone it is built of, is said to have been left over from building the St. Marks basilica. It is famous for weddings, at least I witnessed a few when walking past. The Campo di Miracoli is a nice mostly quiet campo with a few... More

The marble and lighting inside are stunning. This is simple called the Miracle by Venetians. Many try to get married at this church but the wait is a long one.

This church is a small gem, well worth seeking out. Beautifully proportioned and decorated without and within with marble and with paintings on its barrel-vaulted ceiling, it is a masterpiece of Renaissance architecture. The church was built to house a beautiful icon of the Virgin, which now graces the altar. Note: The map provided by TripAdvisor incorrectly places the church... More

tucked away between Rialto and Fondamento. Nice somewhat smaller scale church - apparently beloved by Venetian wedding planners

To get to this gem we caught the ferry - which gives you the opportunity to see the grand canal and it's surroundings on the way. The church itself is one of my favorites - the outside architecture breath taking with statues carved into the building from stone. Inside there are beautiful paintings and take notice of the beauty in... More

It needs persistence to find this church, but it is worth it. Interesting contrast to the ornateness of the principal churches in Venice. Simple, but serene. They say that people like getting married here.

This little jewel box of a church is a must. Nothing is very far away in central Venice so it really is worth the effort.

Cute church with wonderfully cut pastel marble panels. It is in a congested area that adds to its charm. After seeing this chuch it made me better appreciate the the stonework throughout Venice. And with the cleaning of St. Mark's, it brought to my attention how abundant it is.
