The outside of this church is very plain, I will not deny that. Sadly we did not have the opportunity to go inside. But I must point out that many of these churches are positively loaded with paintings, statuary and gilded and/or marbled interiors. As...More

A pleasingly simple Gothic building of the 14th century, the brick exterior and façade give no indication of the rich interior. Sant'Alvise's interior was remodeled in the 1600s with extravagant trompe l'œil effects on the ceiling. What makes this church so unique is the “Barco”...More

This church is unduly underrated at Tripadvisor so I rate it 5 to help it go up higher. I visited Sant' Alvise as the first church on the Chorus list (i.e. the pass for 15 churches for 12€; otherwise 3€ per church). The church is...More

Sant Alvise is in the top north corner of Canareggio and can be reached either by vaporetto - there is a stop named after it - or by walking along the unspoilt authentic canals which have wide fondamente and a scattering of sleepy little bars...More

Have seen many churches in Europe, this one was just average. Was nice to see, and once was enough. The square in front of the church has a small well where free Venice walking tours start twice a day. Make sure to do your reservations...More

Except the paintings, there is nothing much here. Also it is quite far from the usual routes. Pretty boring. Recommended only for Gothic fans.

This beautiful little church is in the north east most tip of Cannaregio and one of the Chorus pass group (10 euros gets you entrance to about 15 churches in Venice). Its over 600 years old and still very much used as the local community...More

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
