While walking around Venice we happened upon this church. The doors were open so we went in. Outstanding. The art was breathtaking. There were only a few others there, so it was the first time in Venice that we were not suffocated by the crowds. It is free to enter, but we left an offering anyway. This is a must... More

Tucked away on a small square, this church has a beautiful interior and is home to Bellini's painting "Madonna and Saints" as well as the cript of San Zaccaria.

A church festooned with gorgeous paintings (including a Van Dyck) and other hidden treasures. Be sure to pay the 1.50 Euros and see the little museum that's attached to the church.

Maybe not much from the outside, but go inside to marvel at the paintings and decorations, and pay the extra fee, 3 Euros, to visit the underground crypt.

Our hotel was directly across for this church. Whilst quite just an another church with a bell tower from the outside inside is a beautiful church full of wonderful art. Definitely make a stop on your travels around the city.

This was opposite our hotel so it was a must see! It is like most churches in Venice in that it is beautifully decorated no full ofmsrvelous artefacts and art.

Although the church is very dark, the beautiful Madonna with saints by Giovanni Bellini can be lighted for a euro or two. The church isn't large but seems cavernous because is it so high and dark. A good place to sit and take in the atmosphere of this beautiful place. Make sure you visit the Gothic altar from the original... More

A wonderful quiet piazza lead to a peaceful church with people praying in it. There were some gorgeous works or art and some saints on the wall. Nice surprise find!

This church boasts a stunning Bellini altarpiece, the "Sacred Conversation," a Madonna and Child surrounded by saints. Additionally, if you pay the modest €1.50 to see the crypt, you can see a terrific Tintoretto, the birth of St. John, some other interesting paintings, and some eye-popping gilded altar screens. And because no one seems to know about this treasure, it... More

Staying in Castello

Neighborhood Profile
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighborhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.
