We stumbled upon Santa Maria e Donato while wandering around Murano. On general principle, we never skip an open church, and we were excited and surprised by the age and beauty of this relatively unknown basilica. The ancient mosaic floors alone are worth stopping in...More

A nice stop after the glass museum. No fee but collection box. The draw is the ancient floor of mosaic yiles. This in one of the oldest churches. Lol for the glass cross on the side wall.

The mosaics and decorations in general were quite beautiful. It's free, so don't hesitate to enter, it's definitely worth going.

The floors are amazing, and since there are few people they aren't covered up like at San Marco. Quiet peaceful church that is very serene and beautiful. Well worth a visit.

It is like being in Venice but without the crowd. In the evening it is very nice to stroll around in Murano.

This church is stunning. Definitely the best part of Murano for me. Worth a wander down to soak in the architecture.

With floor tiles dating back to the 1100s church is truly magnificent. Frescos on the walls and a magnificent alter piece reminiscent of Paris Sacre Coeur. The font is of beautiful Murano glass and the ceiling just lovely. A great place to visit and contemplate...More

Very sure it is open on Sunday. It is a working church so there will be services but before or after is good.
