Neighborhood: Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbors exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.

After wandering through Venice we were searching for the water bus and stumbled upon this beautiful church. It was very quiet and peaceful with no tourists in sight. Always love getting lost and found in Venice.

Beautiful church, right next to the Zattere waterbus stop in the Dorsoduro area. Did not seem to be a crowded attraction, when we visited we were the only ones in the church. Among the many beautiful artworks that can be viewed here is Jacopo Tintoretto’s Crocifissione which is just spectacular. Definitely worth a visit!

The Gesuati is another of the wonderful churches in Venice, that is still a church unlike St Marks Basilica, San Pantalon and even Basilica Di Santa Maria Della Salute are others. There is still a quiet serenity and majesty present whereas St Marks is a tourist stop, full stop.
One of the great things about Gesuati is that the works of some of the great Venetian masters are in their rightful place rather than in an art museum. You can see the great works at work.They include paintings on the ceiling by Tiepolo and wall paintings by Tintoretto ,Piazetta and Sebastian Ricco. Ricco is credited in the Canaletto exhibition at the Doges Palace as the first master of the eighteenth century. And when you step out on to the Zattere there are the magnificent St Giorgio and Redentore Churches to take your eye.

This church is incredible beautiful! The church is not too big, but its interior has many beautiful sacred images and there are amazing paintings on the ceiling. The church's facade is incredible too! It has many details that reveals its architectural wealth.

This church could be easily overlooked as it’s facade is sort of unassuming and actually a little hard to see, as its right up against the Grand Canal. But this place is 100% worth a look — it’s absolutely beautiful on the inside, a white church decorated with fine paintings and featuring some historic-looking statues. I love churches like these that are so impressive, yet relatively undiscovered. It’s easier to give this sort of place the respect and appreciation it deserves when you don’t have tons of other people being noisy or otherwise distracting you.

This church has a light and airy interior because of its beautiful marble surfaces. The light was excellent, allowing one to appreciate the Tiepolo artwork, the frescoed ceilings and the marble statuary. A very beautiful church in Venice - worth seeing.

This is one of the churches you must pay to enter. It is part of the Chorus Pass. For one price, € 12, the Chorus Pass gives you entrance to 18 churches scattered throughout Venice. This one is a Baroque masterpiece, designed by Giorgio Massari and constructed in the 1740s. The frescoes on the ceiling are renowned and depict scenes from the history of the Dominican Order and are considered some of the best examples of work by Italian artist Giambattista Tiepolo.

The facade of this church is so impressive that I just had to see inside. I was very impressed with the marble work and sculptures, more so than the paintings which are a little dark. Well worth the €3 entry.

It costs a few Euro per person to go inside and the church is closed around lunchtime. The church is different in its decor and style from most other churches in Venice (and the region). Very beautiful interior in a understated way. Fantastic light inside and.
