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.

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.
