Visiting the Venitian churches with their amazing paintings is one of the great pleasures of Venice...and many of them are free, requesting a donation rather than charging an entry fee. What a gift to the visitor, to share such riches with the people of Venice. Thank you.

Another place we stumbled on when getting lost in Venice (the best way to see things). Turned around a corner and there it was. Didn't recognise it at first and then a glimmer of recognition. A quick look in guidebooks and yes, we can appreciate its unusual architecture. Inside is the same wit an great ceiling. A great place to... More

Tiny and tucked away in a less tourist frequented area of Venice, this is one of THE most beautiful sights. A truly gorgeous church: the pale hues of the marble, the extraordinarily rich decoration of the barrel vaulted ceiling, the glorious stair-cased altar, and the perfect proportions. Such harmony! Not to be missed.

It was closed when I got there, so I couldn't go inside, but the exterior was exquisite, despite pretty bad deterioration of the marble facades. Well worth walking by.

Venetian churches tend to follow a pattern: not much to look at from the outside and the interest on the inside comes from the wonderful art. Santa Maria dei Miracoli is unusual in that it is with visiting because it's a lovely building in its own right. Worth a visit as a change from everything else you'll see.

This is a very unique church, full of all marble. One huge space inside with white marble walls. Very interesting place to see. Much different than the other churches you'll see in Venice.

Santa Maria dei Miracoli is one of those places that you know you are somewhere special. The best single word to describe it is 'harmony'. The scale, size, amazing vaulted ceiling, beautiful pink and white marble, high staircase to the altar, all combine to make it absolutely clear why this is one of the most popular venues for marriages.

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.

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.
