“Better from the outside”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

Stunning from the outside at salute water stop but inside whilst decorative was disappointing with very little to see due to restoration and very little tourist information.

“An incredible building”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

An incredible building, so peaceful, cool and beautiful. We spent an hour wandering around looking at the magnificent architecture. Even the walk to and from it was glorious. The statue with the armed guard is worth a look, but what a boring job!

“Spectacular church, don't miss the sacristy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

When you visit this church, make sure that you don't miss visiting the sacristy. The entrance is non-descript and sort of hidden off to the side, you have to wind through a narrow hallway to get to the entrance point, and you have to pay a few euro to get inside, but it is well worth it. The frescoes on the wall and the ceiling are unbelievable, and most likely you'll be in there alone or with only a few people to enjoy them. Titian's ceiling paintings and portraits are more than worth the price of admission, and you also have Tintoretto's Marriage at Cana and Salviati's Last Supper, along with several other works.

“Superb viewpoint”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

If you visit the island opposite S Marco, via the Accademia bridge, turn left and lose the Venice crowds. Walk thro quiet streets with galleries and restaurants, past the Peggy Guggenheim (but do that too) and you will reach the iconic church with its welcoming steps, a rest and a sight for sore eyes, across the lagoon and off to the Lido. The church is a bit scruffy and you can pay to see its masterpieces. It seems to be open all day.
