Some parts of this church are under restoration. Its architecture is very interesting. There is a beautiful and big organ inside the church. There are many beautiful paintings, mainly on the entrance, and interesting sacred images.
I had reservations with enough time and even thought the line was long .The staff was rude. The serenade was a performer in one gondola not on the one we were siting with four other people and several other gondolas following each other. Bummer!!!! 6...More
While wandering from the Accademia bridge back to St Marks Square, trip across this little beauty in a blink and you could miss location you stroll through a small square. Stunning front to this church with some excellent statues on the front, well worth 5...More
This church was directly facing our hotel, Bel Sito Berlino. I am not one for churches but decided to go in. What a surprise . Quite small inside , which wasn't expected after the elegance and grandeur of the outside. Beautiful paintings both on walls...More
Suddenly, it was at the end of quiet alleyway/street and it was spectacular from the outside. It almost seemed out of place because it was so ornate with columns and intricate sculptures in such a quiet little corner of Venice. So glad we were able...More

The outside of this church is awe inspiring. Seeing as I was staying in the hotel next door, I had to go inside for a look. To be honest, apart from a rare Rubens picture, I struggle to remember much else. Maybe it was the...More
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and
Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
