“Special landmark”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

I fell in love with this church the minute I saw it imposing on the Canal. The interior is as impressive, but the best time to see Santa Maria is at night - If you can bring yourself to lift your eyes...

“Great photo shoot location for San Maggiore”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

To reach San Maria Salute, we took the waterbus via the Giadecca canal and landed on Ziltere stop. The walk towards Santa Maria Salute took us through some quiet and picturesque canals. And nearby to Santa Maria Salute, at the tip, you can take a good photo of San Giorgio Maggiore.

“looks great out- and inside”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

I have been in Venice several times, but this was the first time to visit this basilica. It is quite impresive from outside, but also inside is nice to see. Very bright, colourful stone floor. In the late afternoon, sun rays come directly through the windows and it looks especially nice.

“A must see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

Beautiful building, with marble columns, a good place to view St Marks across the water of the Grand Canal, and an easy access to the "other " canal
