Chiesa di Santa Maria dei Carmini is one of many churches in Venice. There is so many that you cant visit them all.

Just pure inspiration the entire City of Venice! Ever corner something new, old and classical. Too many professional beggars that need to help out the hard working people in Venice to keep it clean than taking hand outs.

I popped into the Carmini church on the Campo Santa Margherita after visiting the nearby Scuola di Carmini (5E) because the church was free. From the outside, the plain red brick facade had a distinctive trefoil roof line with 5 white marble statues - 2...More

Giudecca
Giudecca is a retreat for Venetians away from the

factories to a quiet residential area with a
sprinkling of restaurants and bars. The majestic
