Well, we did not manage to get in, as there were other places as priority. But this was the first object, that we had to find, so we could find our hotel. Yes, I did look it up in map, but I got lost, accidentally....More

This is a lovely church. Huge Tintorettos and many other lovely art. Don't miss Madonna del Orto herself, and learn her story. It is really rather lovely. If you look at her closely you can imagine the sculptor throwing her away in a rage. She...More

Most come here for the - frankly rather dark and dull - Tintoretto painting. However I'd say forget that and head into the delightful hidden courtyard next door (right of the front door). This 'campo' was restored by the 'Venice In Peril' folks, and there...More

Tintoretto's local church, and the site of his tomb, is right up at the northern edge of the islands. where Canareggio meets the lagoon. It is thirty minutes from San Marco and twenty from the Rialto: a 'must see' if you have come to appreciate...More

This church is highly decorated with enormous paintings but the best part is the lovely 14th century sculptured Madonna by Giovanni de Santi. It had originally been commissioned for another church but rejected, so the sculptor put the statue in his own garden (orto in...More

If your visit to Venice has enhanced your appreciation of Tintoretto, this church is required. He is buried here (his home is nearby), and the church contains monumental paintings. His Last Judgment is especially powerful

This located about thirty minute walk from San Marcos square, It is worth the walk. And take a side walk through the old Jewish portion of town. If you are staying at the Boscolo Venezia it is only two blocks town the canal.

This is a church not to be missed (the English Church) - the Tintoretto's are lovely and it is quite something to be in the space where Tintoretto worshiped and in the neighborhood where he wandered. His home is just over the bridge in Calle...More

We went when it was supposed to be closed so the place was empty and tranquil we had a quick look around before exiting.

I visited this church because it is located right by the Boscolo Venezia Hotel, in Cannareggio. It is really worth it! It is beautiful on the outside, located in a very peaceful place, and has also a pretty interior, including several paintings of Domenico Tintoretto,...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

Nope. The church is in a residential area of Venice and away from most of the tourist attractions and crowds. So unless you have the misfortune of arriving the same time as a tour group does, you'll have the church mostly... More
