This church is located next to Stazione Santa Lucia and is undergoing restoration, but from the design on the building cover, it looks to be a very nice façade. Did not enter the church as mass was being conducted.

Popped into this church when visiting the Jewish Quarter of the City. There is almost too much to take in with artwork everywhere you look. Amazing stone and wood carvings and paintings cover every inch. Unfortunately we were there during a Sunday service so did...More

Free to enter. Donations accepted. Very elaborate art. One of the most well maintained we visited. Nice little gift shop even had some Italian cookbooks, oils and soaps.

Right next to Santa Lucia Railway station, Chiesa di Santa Maria di Nazareth - Chiesa degli Scalzi sits probably unnoticed by most visitors. It is quite unassuming, unless you care to look sideways! Enter and you will be absolutely amazed by the beautiful baroque architecture...More

If you are waiting for your train in Venezia S.L., why not spend a little time in this late-1600s church? Although it's next to a busy transport hub, Chiesa degli Scalvi (Church of the Barefooted) is somehow a hidden gem that countless people would walk...More

People walk by this church a thousand times a day. I have been to Venice many times, and not gone in. It is sooo worth a visit. The whole interior is Baroque, with a great ceiling, but it is not lit. What a disappointment there....More

Cannaregio
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district)

Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby
