Stumbled across this massive church near where we were staying in San Polo. Couldn't believe the Tiepolo's in the rear of the church. Christ's journey to the cross was an amazing experience.

The heart of Venice with lots of historic grandeur. We had an excellent 3 day holiday here in January. Lots to see and do. Still very busy and we had a pleasant 10C temperature on our visit to this area. Expensive, but it's a treat.

Beautiful part of Venice, very quiet and close to all. Bus/Train station and walking distance to San Marco and Rialto Bridge. All amenities close bye and great place to stay in Venice.

I must say its a must to wander around here. Its rather peacefull and a very quiet area. Lots to see and great food almost around every little corner. Local arts and crafts can be found too. Well worth a stroll ❤️

San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six
sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest
neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the
markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San
