The Santa Maria dei Miracoli is a one cause church. It is the shelter of an Icon, pure and simple. The marble works are just stunning, light, simple, superior. Compared to the muddle and megalomania of the large churches of Venice this room gives piece of mind.

This was our favorite Church of all those we visited last week on our three days in Venice for the first time - very beautiful without being too much to take in like some of the others. If you must miss some do not miss this one!

This is absolutely my favourite church in Venice. Every time we visit Venice we have to go to see this church! Multicoloured marble facade and it positively glows day and night. It has a bit of a lean to one side, and its windows are a bit wonky at the back, but this adds to its charms. When we visited... More

Both inside and out this church epitomises 'exquisite'. The use of vairied precious marbles and the inventive intrioduction of a design that is hospitable to a light interior are features that stay with you. It was fascinating that the first owners of the 'Miracoli' painting were obliged by the Senate to construct this edifice as a more suitable accommodation for... More

I loved this little church. It's got an amazing history and it's situated in such a beautiful setting. It's beautiful inside and out and definitely worth a visit!

We came upon this small church and very quite taken with it's beautiful exterior marble. It was apparently restored with funds from an american Italian Restoration Fund. They did a great job! We paid small admission to go in. The interior is as beautiful as the exterior and is quite nice to just sit and take it in. Oh yes...no... More

A beautiful church both outside and within. The ceiling of the church has an amazing array of paintings and houses the so called weeping Madonna and child. The church is very small and whilst beautiful there is not a lot to see for the EUR3 charge for adults. Children are free. No photos allowed inside.

A true special church in a city of magnificent churches. Make the effort and visit this slightly challenging place to find. The marble outside is as special as the inside.

One of the must churches to visit. We visited this church before lunch on our final day in venice. It is a Chorus church. It is also a marble church with the main altar up a flight of stairs. I was even allowed to take a photo from the back of the church.

Thank Michael B

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighborhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
