The church was rebuilt in 1718–38 by Giovanni Antonio Scalfarotto in neoclassical style. The result was a cyborg with the lower part of the Pantheon and the dome of Santa Maria della Salute. The dome seems disproportionately large. Nothing interesting inside. But the Church knows...More

This church is rather difficult to miss, since it has a big dome which really makes it to stand out.

There are plenty of churches in Venice so sadly this one can be overlooked. It’s right by the main station, just on the other side of the canal. The church itself is very nice, but the real highlight is the crypt beneath it. For 2...More

Santa Croce
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district)
when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring
cars and buses close to the center of Venice.
Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking
Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes
with energy from travelers and students. Historic
palaces and former industrial buildings house some
departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture
