A Church with People Praying

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

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.

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.
