I cannot sufficiently emphasize the quantity of paintings in this place. Almost every inch of the walls is covered. The outside is pretty enough, but the inside is fabulous. I love the deep and soft reds of older paintings. The color is close to red clay both before and after firing -depending on the painting-.

We visited this church early in the morning, when it wasn't full of tourists so we were able to fully enjoy its beauties. make sure to pay the extra fee of 3 euro to visit the museum. Like all churches from Venice, this also bursts with amazing paintings and statues.

Slightly tucked away but not far from the main Canal this is a lovely church in a Square. Quiet and calm almost a retreat from the busy Tourist Trail. Seen 2014

Couldn't go in this church as it always seemed to be closed but the facade was worth stopping by alone very ornate and beautiful!

While walking around Venice we happened upon this church. The doors were open so we went in. Outstanding. The art was breathtaking. There were only a few others there, so it was the first time in Venice that we were not suffocated by the crowds. It is free to enter, but we left an offering anyway. This is a must... More

Tucked away on a small square, this church has a beautiful interior and is home to Bellini's painting "Madonna and Saints" as well as the cript of San Zaccaria.

A church festooned with gorgeous paintings (including a Van Dyck) and other hidden treasures. Be sure to pay the 1.50 Euros and see the little museum that's attached to the church.

Maybe not much from the outside, but go inside to marvel at the paintings and decorations, and pay the extra fee, 3 Euros, to visit the underground crypt.

Staying in Castello

Neighbourhood Profile
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the 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 criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.
