The dome is easily visible from many parts of Venice, and it is easy accessible, close to the Peggy Guggenheim collection. Really beautiful inside, with lovely sculptures and paintings.

Beautiful church based on a circular design. The real find though is behind the main altar in a side gallery. Tintoretto's Wedding Feast at Cana is being restored in the vestry. Fascinating, huge painting hidden away from the public. Kudos to Save Venice for undertaking such an important project. Very remarkable and woth 4€.

The setting is lovely..a short walk from the Peggy Guggenheim collection. This Basilica has 12 Titians in the Sancristy. Welcome cool review on a hot day. Free but donations welcome. The organ recital was out of "Phantom of the Opera."

If you are into architecture, history, or religion, Santa Maria della Salute is certainly a place to see in Venice, and there's something about the way it's dome dominates several views from other points in the city. During autumn and winter, both the church and the beautiful canal walk that lead you there tend to have few visitors. The black... More

Santa Maria della Salute is a low key, dignified but very beautiful basilica. It is away from the main tourist areas, yet looks across onto St Marks Sqare, which gives you a unique view of Venice. The church itself has beautiful art, and and floors are stunning. One of the pleasures was sitting on the steps and watching the activity... More

The awesome church was built to honor Mary by the Venetian survivors of the Plague. The statues and paintings are beautiful artwork. The place is inspiring, especially when the organ is being played during Mass.

Beautful views from Gran Canal. Watch up for the lady in the front door, she can be rude and agressive.

Another charming church I had always wanted to visit and definitely worth the wait. This beautiful church captures your eye as it sits between the Grand Canal and Guidecca Canal. It is just as beautiful inside with its many chapels and surprising octagonal shape.

Interesting church on a cute shopping street. Worth a stop in. Mentioned a few times in the book Beware of Falling Angels, a must read for visitors to Venice.
