On your way back, perhaps from the Church of Santi Giovanni e Paolo you might easily miss this lovely little church - a real gem. The interior is distinctive with a fairly small nave and then an imposing staircase up to the altar. This is a wedding church for Venetians and you can understand why. There are lovely marble carved... More

A tiny church but the quality of the workmanship in the building of it is superb. It is covered on the outside in coloured marbles like precious inlays and the inside does not disappoint. My favourite bit is the left hand pillar by the door as you look to the altar. The delicate carvings on it are so beautiful and... More

This is a small church, and may well not be of interest to the non-church enthusiast. However this member of the chorus of churches has walls covered almost entirely of marble with little ornament. The result is a serene interior space quite different to the busy decoration of the typical Venetian church.

The church is small enough that you'd be able to see it by walking in. We did walk in but once I saw that you had to pay three euros just to sit in the pews (all you can do, and you can't take pictures), we just walked out. Not worth the stop.

This early Venetian renaissance church, which is located in the Cannaregio district, has a polychrome marble exterior. It is worth a visit especially if you have the Chorus card or the Venezia Unica city pass which include the admission price.

Venice is a city many have visited and most of those who haven't know it is worth going. Alhough in the last 20 years the turistic paths have enlarged there are still minor streams. Santa Maria dei Miracoli is a Tullio Lombardo and his sons Pietro e Alfredo. It has as some othe Italian Renaissance buildings an irenic Phidiac aura... More

My wife remembered the little mermaids carved near the altar of this gorgeous little church, a jewel of the Renaissance. The marble walls and the coffered ceiling are both splendid; the 15th century painting over the altar is a jewel. Not too many people visit this church, which makes it all the more pleasant and inviting.

My wife and I had prepurchased the Chorus Pass for churches in Venice and this was the first we visited....and glad we did at that. It is about a 5 or 10 minute walk from St Mark's Square. The impressiveness in the church is it's simplicity, light and airiness. Well worth the visit. It truly is a minor "miracle" of... 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.
