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

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.

I think this is my favorite exterior of all the churches/basilicas in Venice...and often a string quartet will be playing Vivaldi one the pavement near the water in the fine weather. Just sit on the steps and take it all in!

This was a spectacular building right by the canal and well worth a visit to look up at the huge dome. Organ music playing when we were there which was very moving.

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
