We went when it was supposed to be closed so the place was empty and tranquil we had a quick look around before exiting.

I visited this church because it is located right by the Boscolo Venezia Hotel, in Cannareggio. It is really worth it! It is beautiful on the outside, located in a very peaceful place, and has also a pretty interior, including several paintings of Domenico Tintoretto, the son of the famous Venetian painter Jacobo Tintoretto.

If we hadn't taken a walking tour of Venice with our guide, Simona S., we wouldn't have seen many wonderful sights that are off the tourist's main path, like this church.

This part of Canneregio is quite ordinary, even a little dull with some indifferent modern apartments. The church, too, is quite plain on its exterior. But, it is where Tintoretto did much work and there are stunning pieces all around the altar. He lived nearby and is buried in the church. The walk to the church from St Marks is... More

Madonna dell'Orto is away from the crowd and can be reach by walking through the former Jewish ghetto. Use Google map to stay on track and cross the canals at the bridges. When you arrive, the church is unassuming from the outside but the real special aspects are inside in the sacristy. Titian and Tintoretto adorn the walls and can... More

Away from the ordinary touristic routes in Venice, the Church of the Madonna dell’Orto is the ideal place to visit, quiet and calm but plenty of masterpieces of great interest, many paintings from the venetian school, which Tintoretto is the most representative and where is buried, paintings of the main altar are the most spectacular and complete but under my...

Off the beaten track, but well worth it. Tintoretto's famous painting "The Presentation of the Virgin" and more adorn the walls of this church. Well worth it if you are interested in comparing this painting to the same one done by Titian

We were not keen on the outside of this church, but loved the contents. This rather ugly duckling amidst beautiful churches was built mid 14th century and devoted to St. Christopher, patron saint of traders and travellers, is situated at the side of the Rio Della Madonna dell’ Orto canal. The façade is very striking, red sloping herringbone bricks with... More

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
Cannaregio
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 shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighborhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
