This small church, like many throughout Italy, presents a plain and somewhat sober facade. Yet inside, grandeur reigns. San Salvador's ground was first consecrated in 1177 but the present structure was started in 1508 and the facade was completed in 1663. The marble mosaic floor...More

As usual in Italy, this is an interesting church, worth a visit. No photography was allowed, but I could not resist to take a photo of the optical illusion in the floor. The same kind of floor can be admired in the Duomo in Padova.

This church is well maintained and is very beautiful. The architecture is interesting and there are lots of details. The colors are harmonized with the decoration; there are parts in red that give to the church a great aspect. It's wonderful! I recommend the visitation...More

Not far from the Rialto Bridge is this small church. You can actually enter from the Campo San Salvador or from the famous shopping street, Mercerie. The church has been renovated many times. The façade was done by Giuseppe Sardi in 1663. The bell tower...More

Located within the eponymous Campo, this church was surrounded by construction fencing and scaffolding leading into the church. We entered the church and were a little taken aback as there were no frescos on the ceilings, but surrounding the Nave are numerous statuary and tombs....More

An active church with amazing art--note the Titian Annunciation--this is a welcome stop from the frenzied shopping outside its door. Take the time to sit, reflect, and see the works of Jacopo Sansovino, Francesco Vecellio, Alessandro Vittoria,Giulio Angolo del Moro Savior

Entrance we went in is covered in scaffolding at present. Nice surprise when we emerged from the scaffolding! A lovely church, red fabric on the pillars is imposing. A beautiful stained glass window is on show after being renovated.

While visiting Venice, it is quite easy to become indifferent to the Venetian churches, simply because there are so many of them. During our most recent to the city, we passed by so many of them, essentially because we simply did not have enough time...More

We were strolling around the Rialto area and bumped into the church. It's a beautiful church with exquisite art and beautiful architecture and mason art. We lit some candles before heading off to explore the neighbourhood.

If you are heading to the Rialto stop off here and visit the stunning rederos, the beautiful Bellini,stunning roof art and gaze downwards at the intricacy and craftsmanship of the floor tiles. A place to gather thoughts amidst the noise of Venice
