From the outside the church is already impressive. From the inside it's even better than you would expect. Really a tressure! The only thing is that the church is open for a few hours a day, two hours in the morning and two in the...More
Many of the Venice churches can be dark with poor lighting, but not Gesuiti. The light, airy feel of the church set a relaxing mood. Photos were also allowed. In particular the marble interiors and ceiling frescoes made Gesuiti unique. This is a top church...More
Looking at its plain exterior, one would never even begin to imagine the beauty inside this magnificent church. From art treasures-a Titian & a Tintoretto no less-to fabulous marbles, sculptures, exquisite statuary, the spiral pillars holding up the marble canopy over the main altar, this...More
Church in the northern part of Venice is very interesting architecture from outside and vivid Baroque interior. No description can be exact for this stone masterpiece. It is not all. Left from the entrance is altar with a huge painting. It is one of the...More
Such a beautiful place. Even better when there is a service is going on. They are happy for you to be there. Just be respectful. Also staff were really amazing and helpful. Even directing me to their toilet, which can be hard to find in...More
While the imposing size of this church looms over the Campo de Gesuiti, the rather inornate exterior belies the splendour that is the inside of this magnificent church. Definitely worth the 1 euro entrance fee. A very worthwhile stop on the walk to or from...More
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby
shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
