When I walk into a church in Venice sometimes it occurs to me that the paintings are overkill. The marble itself is so incredibly beautiful. It shines on the gleaming pillars and shining floors and catches your eye with its amazing workmanship. We cannot discount the paintings of course, but with so much beauty it can be difficult to fully... More

People rave about Tintoretto's work at the Scuola Grande di San Rocco, but Veronese's work here (done in his twenties) is stunning! Seeing this church made me rethink Veronese as an artist. One of the two or three most beautiful churches in Venice. Do not miss it!

Reading all the churches in the Venice, this was one of the place I had to see. For most people, this church is off the beaten path. You can get off at the San Basilio station, Dorsoduro # 2, 5.1, 5.2 , N ferry line. When you get off the ferry station, go straight to the street Calle del Vento,... More

This church is a Must See in Venice, particularly if one's stay is more than 4 days. It is a bit off the beaten path and away from the more typical tourist areas of Venice. Best way to get there is to take the Ponte dell'Accademia, then head to the west. Many Veronese paintings here, and if possible see the... More

If you are a lover of Veronese, you have to come here. I was not familiar with him before, but this church helped me become obsessed with Venetian painters - Veronese, Tintoretto, Titian. The church itself is a little haven of peace in the backstreets of Venice - unassuming outside, but a riot of colour and art within. Don't miss... More

Full of angels. One of very seldom churches get me crying in silence. Small but harmony cruch. Veronese loved animals and mystery of old stories from bible.

Unassuming smaller church tucked away in Dorsoduro. But the walls, ceiling, chapels etc. are chock full of Veronese. Gorgeous. Well worth a visit and the nominal entry fee.

The church is in a quiet part of town, the Dorsoduro sestriere near the trendy Zattere area The facade is a sober white stone XXth century architecture Inside there is a full cycle of paintings by Paolo Veronese: really stunning. The painter is buried in the church. People in Venice prayed Saint Sebastian to free them from cholera epidemics. A... More

Very well worth the three euros! The Veronese ceiling and sacristy are exquisite. A jewel in this quiet corner of the Dorsoduro.

One of the churces you have to pay € 3 to enter, although I got permission to sit in the back for a short prayer without any payment. For a tourist that want to just take a look at a couple of random churches, pick another.

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighborhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbors exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
