Although this church was closed when we visited, it was worth the walk to see the exterior. The actual colours of the marble are not quite as the books would have you believe, but they still make a beautiful facade, and we can see why it is referred to as a jewel box.

It was on the list so we dropped by for a quick look. They do charge admission. We were there about 10 minutes and we moved on.

we sought this church out as part of our finding locations from the film Don't Look Now. It's a gorgeous church outside and in, there is a charge to go inside and no photos allowed. Worth checking out if you are in the area.

A perfect little church, like a jewel box. So much beautiful trompe l'oeil marble and it's no surprise it's the favoured choice of Venetians for their weddings.

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

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
Cannaregio
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.
