When you visit the Church of Santa Maria della Salute don't miss out to visit the sacristy. There you find some beautiful paintings by a young Titian and also a most interesting depiction of the Wedding at Cana by Tintoretto. When viewing this painting start...More

The church is closed between noon and 1500 and best visited after lunch. The Sacristy is where the Tintorettos are and well worth the €3 entrance.

I also visited the sacristy and by doing so you could receive a discounted ticket for the Seminary art exhibit next door. That was very well worth it because both venues are small, and there was almost no one else in them. The art is...More

This iconic building is situated just across theGrandCanal from St Marks square. I am sure every visitor has photographed it! You can take a water taxi or just stroll across the academia bridge. Watch out for the smartly dressed beggar who tries to make you...More

Its hard not to get a culture overload with all of the beautiful architecture in Venice but its definitely worth the short Vaperetto trip across the Canal from St Marks to see this beautiful church.

Best from outside and famous landmark. Was right next to our accommodation. Inside not as amazing as we expected. All the glory is on the outside of building.

Another huge church and built to say thank you for soaring some from the plague. How all these great churches were built never ceases to amaze me.

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

It is free entry. The treasury costs a few euros. Don't know about Chorus.
Is there a dress code to get into the church? E.g. No short skirts or shoulders exposed?

Unfortunately the church closes quite early at 17.30. I have often wanted to show the sacristy to visiting friends and stood before a closed door. The church is also closed at lunch time and reopens at 15.30. In the morning... More
