Everyone knows about the canals, the bridges and the churches, but when exploring Venice you also find little gems like this building/arch. As of most Venetian buildings, it has some beautiful decorations and oozes class.

Beautiful, intimate church for Symbolic Ceremony. Super accommodating and very easy to organize with their staff. We were able to create a beautiful atmosphere for the Wedding, although the is interior is beautiful on its own. So charming.

San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six
sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest
neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the
markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San
