Stumbled across this massive church near where we were staying in San Polo. Couldn't believe the Tiepolo's in the rear of the church. Christ's journey to the cross was an amazing experience.

The heart of Venice with lots of historic grandeur. We had an excellent 3 day holiday here in January. Lots to see and do. Still very busy and we had a pleasant 10C temperature on our visit to this area. Expensive, but it's a treat.

San Polo is a lovely area of Venice. It has a long history and some of its "trade marks" are the famous Rialto Bridge and of course the Church of San Rocco and the Scuola Grande di San Rocco, among others. We loved walking around...More

San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six
sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest

stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San
