beautiful tranquil church

hidden jewel of Venice! - church made from marble. Not ornate but simply stunning. Can see why Venetians would chose to marry here

The churches in Venice are amazing. The only thing that annoys me is the fact that they tell you how much to pay to light a candle. What happened to the days of offering what one could afford. After all it is a church!!

This was an unusual and lovely church. Inside it was pure marble and very light. It had the feel of a user friendly church. It is built in a barrel shape which is unusual. It lies right next to a canal. worth a visit for its originality

This church in many ways is reminiscent of Florence, more than Venice. It is located in a quiet little square, although not far from the nearby bustle of the Rialto.The location feels like a lived in neighborhood.

We searched for this church hidden away northof the Rialto bridge and it was well worth it. smaller than some, 3 euro entry with marble panels, wonderful celing frescoes, with a good story behind it's origins

This is a real gem to visit. In our view it was the most beautiful church in Venice, sympathetically restored. Make sure you include it in your itinerary. There is a small fee to enter but worth it.

This is, in my view one of the most beautiful churches in the whole of Venice, and a place essential to visit. There is a small charge to go in, but the 3 Euro charge is well very little for what is frankly a superb little church. A little off the beaten track, but better, I think for all that.... More

Well worth the small 3 euro's fee. What I really liked was the fact that the beautiful marble facade was continued inside and you often have such contrasts in Venice churches. The minute detail of the marble carvings is fantastic, the stems on the ivy going up the steps to the altar is as fine as a cocktail stick. The... More

This church stood out from the many churches we visited in Venice, because it is solid marble inside and out. The significantly raised altar was also unusual. Worth visiting just for the uniqueness value.

The Miracoli is truly a miracle! With its colored marbles and beautiful proportions it recalls the height of the Italian Romanesque style (S. Miniato in Florence) but a has a clear and fresh feeling of the early Renaissance (the Tempio Malatestiano in Rimini) . Built all at once in the late Quattrocento, every detail is coordinated with the building as... More

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighborhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
