St. Stae's is different from the other churches in Venice. It has a light and clean feel for a baroque era church, which highlights the art adorning the walls. But here's my tip: spend some time sitting and contemplating the church while you are there....More

Another church that we unfortunately did not see the inside of. The outside is in fact glorious. Catching the light of the sun and clearly showing the lines of the ornamentation adorning the facade.

Right on the Grand Canal, this church will jump out at you as you go by. The bright and intricate marble and stone early 1700's façade is striking; numerous statues by Italian Baroque sculptors decorate the roofline and prominent niches. In front is a nicely...More

This 17th century church overlooks the Grand Canal and is located in the Santa Croce district. Inside there are works of art by many painters, including Tiepolo. Entrance was included in my Venezia Unica city pass.

One of the few churches on the Grand Canal, this is the place to come for 18th century Venetian paintings. It features many statues of virtues, saints and angels, and two reliefs on the life of Saint Eustace. It is a perfect example of a...More

San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six
sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest
neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the
markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San
