There are so many churches around Venice and this is one of the better ones. Definitely worth a look, enjoy and give a little something to keep it that easy.

I would venture to guess that most tourists walk right by this church without taking the time to take a look, which they should. It is right next to the Santa Lucia train station and in front of where you catch the vaporetto on the...More

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

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
