This early renaissance building was built and decorated by Tullio and Lombardo. Well worth a quick visit.

This tiny church, tucked away is on the "Chorus pass" ticket and well worth a visit. The icon on the high altar is stunning and the various marbles used in decoration are impressive. You can see why this is a favourite for Venetian brides.

Santa Maria dei Miracoli was built by Pietro Lombardi and his son, Tullio, from 1481-1489 to house the 1408 painting, The Virgin and the Child, that was believed to have miraculous powers. Rarely are churches built as a whole, over a short period of time, to the vision of one designer. Santa Maria dei Miracoli reflects that singular beauty in... More

A beautiful little gem of a church inside and out. It has a beautiful ceiling -ask the man at the door to switch the lights on if they aren't on already. worth paying the 3.00 Euro entrance

On a wet day we took a ferry then walked a long way to get to Santa Maria. It was high on our list since we had enjoyed our previous visit. When we finally arrived at the church two men were standing in the doorway and told us it was closed for a private function and they were unclear when... More

In the daytime from the outside the marble shimmers on this small but wonderful church. At night from the bar by the canal it takes on a blue hew made more serene by the lapping of water and the occasional gondola that floats by. On the inside it has a perfect painted ceiling and steps to an elevated altar that... More

A bit out of everyday tours, this magical church made by a very famous architect, is a precipus pearl in the heart of venice. The Lombardo signature is a dream for every lover of history of art or of architecture. A lot of british use it as location to get married: good choice! It really magical, with its marble side...

This church is interesting for those who want to have a closer look at the EARLY stage of the Renaissance in Venice. Other places would be: Scuola grande di San Marco (next to the SS. Giovanni e Paolo Church, not far from Miracoli), San Zaccaria (close to Riva degli Schiavoni, with a great collection of paintings), Palazzo Trevisan (just behind... More

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.
