Murano, Burano and Torcello Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

5,014 reviews
This sightseeing tour allows you to see three islands in the Venetian Lagoon in half a day. Visitors often visit Murano—well-known for its glass-blowing factory—but fewer make it to Burano and Torcello, with their lace-making shops and ornate palaces and churches. The tour also offers two departure times a day, making it easier to fit into your schedule.

This beautiful church , together with Saint James in Rialto , is one of the oldest church in Venice, the facade , made in baroque style in 1663 on design of Giuseppe Sardi. The Renaissance internal I couldn’t see because it’s closed for restoration

There is scaffolding outside linked to building works in the adjacent former monastery, but don't let that put you off - you can still enter the church and it is well worth visiting. The facade (dated 1663) on the inside is relatively modest; inside is an earlier Renaissance church from 1508 onwards designed around three Greek crosses to allow light in, unified by a magnificent marble mosaic floor. Inside, the most important paintings are probably the two by Titian on the south wall and behind the altar.

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 is an outstanding example of craftsmanship and design. The altar is baroque and wonderful details abound (including a painting by Titian) throughout an interior worthy of your time and attention. Step away from the scurrying of crowds and spend a moment of quiet reflection in this beautiful house of devotion.

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.
