This is one of the best examples of Palladio's work in Venice and is easily accessed by vaporetto. You aren't likely to find a lot of tourists here but on occasion, you will definitely encounter groups of architecture students. Go anyway.
The church was bulit to get rid Venice of the plague in the 16th century. It's grand, calm and peaceful. Definitely worth a trip to Giudecca. If you come this way, walk around this island, it's removed from touristy crowds and gives you splendid views...More
One of the most beautiful churches in Venice - the pale interior makes it feel light, peaceful and still. Ideal for a period of contemplation and prayer as not so inundated with tourists as some other churches in Venice are. A wedding and a multiple...More
One of the great churches of Venice, built as a thanksgiving by the three-quarters of the Venetian population who didn't die of plague in 1575/6. The classical Palladio design looks beautiful from Zattere on the opposite side of the Giudecca canal. Inside it retains the...More
The church itself is lovely, and it is one of the few Palladio designed worship houses in Venice. Once a year, on the third week-end in July, the Festa del Redentore takes place and the relative quiet of the church and the waterfront surrounding it...More
It's lovely to cross the water to Giudecca and visit this Palladio church, restored relatively recently. A haven of stillness reflected in the simplicity of the architecture. My particular highlight was the Vivarini madonna in the sacristy, particularly serene in deep orange robes. This is...More
A beautiful church, one of Palladio's best, and not spoilt by later Baroque additions. Within a short water bus journey of the main sites, but away from the hordes of tour groups from the huge cruise ships now spoiling Venice's main sites.
Giudecca is a retreat for Venetians away from the crowds. Symbolically, six metal teeth represent Venice’s six sestieri (districts); the seventh, Guidecca, points away from the others – part of Dorsoduro, but separated by the Giudecca Canal. Giudecca evolved from a center of shipyards and factories to a quiet residential area with a sprinkling of restaurants and bars. The majestic
harmonious Redentore church stands as thanks for delivering Venice from the plague, hosting an annual heartfelt festival.

Hi, I've been to Venice about 10 times now and stayed at a variety of locations including Maestre and several hotels around San Marco etc. I've also visited the Lido and Guidecca but not stayed there. I haven't been for the Redentore festival but saw a documentary about it so I know what it's about so my suggestion would be to stay around San Marco. Maestre has cheaper accommodation but it has the drawback of a long commute. Trains and vaporetti are frequent but by the time you add the 15min train journey and then catch a water bus down to San Marco you can easily add on another 45 mins or more especially if you catch a number 1, which stops at pretty much every stop. A number 2 is a bit quicker as fewer stops. Don't forget the buses stop early in the day because watercraft are prohibited from the main canals once the firework barges are in place and they're policed strictly. The Lido is also a bit of a commute and a bit far out. The end of the Guidecca nearest San Giorgio is probably a reasonable bet but it still requires water transport to see the main part of the city. I think your best bet is around San Marco, the Riva degli Schiavoni, Arsenale and Salute church. As far as hotels go we've stayed in the Splendid 5 times and they've just put a large roof terrace in, which you can see San Marco campanile from, which is about 300m away. Any rooftop vantage point should be good I'd imagine. It's a bit pricey but worth it - it's a great hotel. Hope this helps. Enjoy your trip.Disarmingly Charming.
