It was great to get off of the beaten path and see Venice from this side of the city but this church....disappointing.
I did not take a pic but probably the chubbier that Jesus I have seen in a painting. Check it out on the...More
In the 16th century Venice experienced a disastrous plague that killed 50,000 people including the Artist known as Titan. The Doge promise God to build a great church if the plague would end. So came into being the Church of the Redeemer or Redentore. On...More
Having visited San Giorgio last year we decided to explore il Redentore, a little further along the Giudecca.
Like many Venetian churches, other than St Mark's, il Redentore is bright and airy inside and also relatively quiet and peaceful at most times.
There is an...More
I'd say this is more for architecture lovers as the interior is fairly plain (albeit spacious and light), but the exterior displays some unusual and innovative features. It's one of my '1,001 buildings you must see before you die' so a trip across the water...More
This 16th century church, located on Giudecca and fronting Giudecca Canal dominates the skyline. Designed by Palladio and built as a votive, for thanks from deliverance from a plague. Atop the dome is a figure of Christ the Redeemer
You are on La Giudecca island, the church is pretty pretty, not too much selfiesticks around, AND you have a fantastic view to San Marco, la Dogana. You can have a quick local lunch at the snack next door
Ordinary visitors go to the church and back to the crowd of Venice. Real visitors sit down and admire architecture and paintings and visit monastery, too. It is real pearl with all yards, arcades, trees and gardens. You need enough time and some money for...More
I am with Ruskin in that the Gothic and Romanesque style are better than the Renaissance. However, Palladio did an excellent job designing this church, and the proportions are excellent. Being on Giudecca it has many fewer visitors than the old city, so it is...More
Catching a number 2 waterbus will take you to this church. Entrance is €3. The church itself is very attractive and impressive and I really wish I'd left after that, but then we entered the Sacristy...it should come with a warning, because as well as...More
Giudecca is a retreat for Venetians away from the crowds. Symbolically, six metal teeth represent Venice’s six sestieri (districts); the seventh, Guidecca, points away from the others – part of Dorsoduro, but separated by the Giudecca Canal. Giudecca evolved from a center of shipyards and factories to a quiet residential area with a sprinkling of restaurants and bars. The majestic
harmonious Redentore church stands as thanks for delivering Venice from the plague, hosting an annual heartfelt festival.

Hi, I've been to Venice about 10 times now and stayed at a variety of locations including Maestre and several hotels around San Marco etc. I've also visited the Lido and Guidecca but not stayed there. I haven't been for the Redentore festival but saw a documentary about it so I know what it's about so my suggestion would be to stay around San Marco. Maestre has cheaper accommodation but it has the drawback of a long commute. Trains and vaporetti are frequent but by the time you add the 15min train journey and then catch a water bus down to San Marco you can easily add on another 45 mins or more especially if you catch a number 1, which stops at pretty much every stop. A number 2 is a bit quicker as fewer stops. Don't forget the buses stop early in the day because watercraft are prohibited from the main canals once the firework barges are in place and they're policed strictly. The Lido is also a bit of a commute and a bit far out. The end of the Guidecca nearest San Giorgio is probably a reasonable bet but it still requires water transport to see the main part of the city. I think your best bet is around San Marco, the Riva degli Schiavoni, Arsenale and Salute church. As far as hotels go we've stayed in the Splendid 5 times and they've just put a large roof terrace in, which you can see San Marco campanile from, which is about 300m away. Any rooftop vantage point should be good I'd imagine. It's a bit pricey but worth it - it's a great hotel. Hope this helps. Enjoy your trip.Disarmingly Charming.
