I don't think the building/church is memorable. It is the art that you want to see. You simply can't miss the polyptych of St. Vincent Ferrer by Bellini, The Baptism of Christ by Piertro Mera, the 13th century Madonna of Peace Chapel, Bassano's St. Hyacinthus...More

Cost a few euros to get in this huge church. Extremely different from St. Mark's church. A canal also runs right by so you can sit and watch the church and the wonderful Hospital. If you're looking to get away from St. Mark's Square and...More

This is the largest church in Venice. It contains amazing tombs of 25 Doges. The sepulchres include some wonderful Renaissance art.

Nothing in Venice is really out of the way but this is north of the crowds. A great very old church with lots of history. They offer English guided tours for donation only on Thursdays by professional tour guides who volunteer to help the Church...More

This church is huge, packed full of paintings and monuments. One thing I particularly liked was all the excellent signs explaining exactly what everything was. We also went to the Frari Church which didn't have as much information so we didn't enjoy that quite so...More

Of course you must have a drink or meal on St. Marks square but it is VERY, VERY expensive. I paid $400 for a glass of champagne. But there is no place with this ambience and atmosphere that can match it.

Not as famous as the Frari, but perhaps even more beautiful, this church has exceptional proportions and a luminous gothic apse. it's crammed with tombs of Doges but it is so large and graceful that is doesn't feel cluttered. It is good to sit here...More

I didn't go into Santi Giovanni e Paolo itself, but after trying to get lost in Venice, I found myself coming into a large campo, from the back, and it was this campo. I sat at a table in the campo and enjoyed a Spritz...More

Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated
within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over
