I visited this Basilica twice during my Venice visit. The architecture is just gorgeous - the view of this Basilica from either the Accademia bridge or San Marco is absolutely amazing. The interior isn't large - but the paintings are lovely as are the statues...More

This church is nice from the outside and inside. It is mainly two large domes, which makes it unique. The interior is pretty and worth a visit. It is closed in the early afternoon. There are also good views of the grand canal and San...More

This I am sure would be a beautiful church on the inside, but the outside is very nice too. Kind of off the beaten path, so not as many people here.

This is arguably the best church in Venice next to San Marco. It is absolutely incredible and a must visit. You pass it on the vaporetto en route to San Marco Piazza. Stop off and take photos, especially at sun down. You just can't enter...More

This is a very grand church - a real feature of Venetian skyline , so you really can't miss it. You can reach it easily by walking over the Accademia bridge or taking the vaporetto to Salute stop. Inside is breathtaking and so bright after...More

One of the outstanding churched in Venice, well worth a visit the paintings were a sight to behold, was quite crowded when were there but it is so big it didn't detract from the visit.

Another fantastic place reached by walking over the Ponte dell'Accademia, it stands at the entrance of the Grand canal, clearly visable from St. Marks. The Basilica was built to honour The Virgin Mary for bringing Venice through the Black death.

The church is rather plain, but beautiful in its size, number of domes and chapels. It is also home to seberal major paintiongs by Titian and Tintoretto.

Having taken photographs of this beautiful church from San Marco we walked across Academia bridge to get to it. There is a convenient vaporetto stop outside. Inside was a massive space, which was really peaceful to walk around.

Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
