In our getting lost, easy to do, we found this beautiful church. There were few people there so was relaxing and no one in the church per se so was easy to look around. Think it was 3 euro to go in and worth it....More

Pay to enter . Not as spectacular as many == St. Anne Basilica in Quebec is spectacular. So many other things to see - if you have a short time, move on.

The sheer size of this basilica is astonishing, jaw-dropping, and the architecture and collection of art works truly extraordinary. A Bellini here, a Vivarini there, and even if you aren't a renaissance specialist the sheer wealth of things to see makes a visit special. There...More

We had an apartment with a view of this magnificent church where 25 doges were buried. It is rich in artwork, architectural structure, and the diversity among the many separate "chapels." Tiepolo, Tintaretto, Bellini and so many other artists (sculptures) are represented here. We could...More

Stumbled upon this remarkable basilica by accident and so happy we did. The inside is absolutely gorgeous and quite moving. Would definitely recommend to stop by for a visit and there is also an awesome cicchetti place around the corner.

Definitely one of the many little piazzas and cieza's worth checking out for sure. The location is not far from most historical places so you might end up / cross by regardless.

Worth a visit as lovely church in a nice little square, it does have an entrance fee but not much. Restaurants around it for lunch or dinner.

Santi Giovanni e Paolo is noted as the location where over 20 of the doges are interred and commenorated with their vast tombs. This is impressive enough, but it also includes an array of art and I find the building impressive, built from brick rather...More

It's a beautiful basilica, just as all the other monuments and places in Venice. You can't take pictures inside though.

Castello is the largest of the six sestieri

Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated
within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over
one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime
neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side
streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals

3,50euros? Savez vous pourquoi est ce payant? Je croyais que tous les monuments religieux étaient gratuits.

You have to pay if you want to visit it. I don´t agree with that. And it is not the only one. If you want to visit other churchs in Venezia you also have to pay, for example la Madonna dell´orto, Santa María dei Miracoli... More
