Lovely church, bit of a walk to get to. They close at 12pm for lunch so make sure you get there on time as I was only able to be in there for 5 mins.

You can see this church from across the Grand Canal and it looks very interesting-it was lovely inside and worth visiting while you are in Venice.

Ones sees this church across the Grand Canal from St. Mark's Square. It is well worth a visit to explore this well-lit church with its amazing statues. On a hot day, sit on the steps and take in the view across the Grand Canal.

Ducked in here as it poured rain one afternoon. Beautiful, almost stoic bastilica. Lots of places to sit and pray or contemplate Venice.

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
