I attended a Vivaldi Concert at this Chiesa. The musicians were absolutely amazing and I would return to Venice just to hear them again. You can't put a price on hearing and experiencing Vivaldi's music played in one of his churches.

Free to go in and see Tiziano; don't pay for the entrance to the Sacrament - total scam; you sit in a hot room with a dozen paintings and no access to the other rooms. complete waste of money.

one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime
