Having visited St Mark's basilica the day before, we were delighted at how uncrowded and peaceful this church was. Right by the water it offers a nice bit of respite on a hot day. You can do a lap of the circular interior to take in all the details and then sit to stare up into the cupola. Definitely go... More

There is usually a big queue and a 20 euro fee to enter the basilica at Saint Marks square, but a nice walk through Venice and you get to this magnificent building. The inside is probably a little less awe inspiring but there is no queue and it is free and just seeing it for its exterior is more than... More

This is definitely a must see if you are in Venice. The huge stairway leads you inside this relatively small and in appearance poor church. Little by little walking in the building you'll discover beautiful paintings and sculptures. I loved the Madonna statue with the big cherry tree made of gold at her feet. There's so much inspiration here if... More

A bit of a walk but worth it. Free entry and they have donation boxes of you wish to give something towards the maintenance of the church. Beautiful and peaceful.

Simply amazing church from the both outside with white marble facade and decorations and inside with beautiful altar and stunning paintings including one Titian's masterpiece. We had a luck to attend some mini concerto for violin and organ and it was amazing.

I missed Peggy Guggenheim visit I stayed so long in this heartbreakingly lovely chiesa. It's set right along the canal with a water bus stop that lets you out practically on the stairs. I also liked the B&B type area of hotels around it and gives it a neighborhood feeling despite the majesty and size of Santa Maria. Would love... More

This church is well worth the walk. It is opposite Saint Mark's, but across the Grand Canal. There is no entrance fee and it has some beautiful sculptures and tabernacle.

Free entrance and worth a visite! Nice octa-shaped church, with great paintwork. You can light a candle for 1 euro
