Even if don't have the time to visit the church, don't skip the visit to the bell tower, and for once you won't have to climb, there is an elevator!, it is a glass elevator so you can see the inside of the bell tower as you go.
The best views of venice are found at the top of the tower so don't forget your camera.

You have to take a ferry or a gondala to see this church. It is situated at the end of the Grand Canal, it is a Palladium Church and is magnificent both on the outside as well as the inside. It has a free standing bell tower that you can climb. I must warn you that you must take care not to be there when the bell is rung, you will be deafend. I have visited this church many, many times.

We really enjoyed the two exhibits we saw - Carlo Scarpa Venini 1932-1947 and Louisiana Museum of Modern Art Life Between Buildings.

My favorite view of this church is from the breakfast terrace at the Europa and Regina hotel along the Grand Canal, lingering over a cup of coffee!

Take the #2 vaporetta from St. Mark's Square to this island. Nice church but taking the elevator up the bell tower (5 euros) gave us the best views of Venice. Absolutely breathtaking and not as crowded as the Campanile in St. Mark's.
