My opinion might be slightly skewed as I was there on a photography workshop. Salute is certainly a photographer's paradise. Shoot in black and white or color; use a telephoto or fisheye lens; shoot architectural details or people -- it all works. We were there...More

Built to commemorate the end of the bubonic plague ( La peste ) in Venice, this church has a beautiful position in Venice. Although very plain inside compared to the other churches in Venice it still is worth a visit to admire its simplicity. You...More

Beautiful, amazing pieces of marble work and alter pieces. Painstakingly preserved piece of Venetian history. Check out the district, it is well worth the trip.

On the very last day of our holiday I realised a long wished-for dream, which was walking to the Santa Maria della Salute, and spending time inside. This church has so much presence - much more so than St Mark's, although I don't wish in...More

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
