Another of Venice's hidden jewels.

Another of Venice's many churches that are not on the main tourist routes and which we wouldn't have seen if we hadn't taken a Venice Walking Tour with our guide, Simona S.

As I walked the square, I breathed the peace and loveliness surrounding the area. One of the more peaceful spots not invading by tourist hordes. Well worth a venture over, if you enjoy walking the sestieres.

Although there was work being done to the square whilst I was there, I was definitely fell in love with the beautiful building and the quietness of the square. It was a really nice change from the hectic atmosphere in St Mark's Square. The church has a stunning exterior and an even nicer interior and was full of information. Great... More

The Campo San Zaccaria was located close to our hotel and is a peaceful and lovely spot, with some interesting shops and a gorgeous, enormous beech tree in the corner of the square. The church itself is worth a quick visit. What I remember most is a lovely Bellini altarpiece (the first of MANY Bellinis I saw in Venice) and... More

So beautiful on the outside and even better inside, lots of information inside, in all languages. There is even the mummified corpse of San Zaccaria inside. Beautifully decorated. Highly recommend a visit here

There are so many beautiful churches in the Venice area. If you walk the area you will find one around every corner. This church is no exception, very nice and worth the look if you are in the area.

We had been walking through the streets an alleys of Venice for over an hour when we came to the open space in front of this church. There were a few benches underneath a couple of trees which provided some shade from the sun so we spent a pleasant 15 minutes or so taking the weight of our feet and... More

The church itself is nothing special, except that it dates back to the 9th century, and has some parts left from those days to prove it, as well as full remains of two saints, if you're into that sort of thing. Also, for ~2 euro you can visit the flooded crypt of St Zaccaria, which was my favorite part.

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.
