When you want to get away from the May crowds, it worth having a route in mind. We opted for a walk from San Zaccaaria stop to Parco della Rimembranze, with a return via San Pieteo cathedral. Unbeknownst to us, it was open to visitors...More

The situation of this church is absolutely lovely. And unlike several other churches we saw it is not too difficult to capture the entire front of the building in one shot. We did have a chance to go inside, as I believe we arrived during...More

We used our vaporetta pass to circumnavigate Venice on a day trip, stopping off at various points along the way, enabling us to get to some of the more distant places. San Pietro di Castello was lovely, with a pleasant 10-minute from the vaporetta station...More

This is a beautifully ornate church. Very little is original but a great deal of effort has been put into restoring the sections which have been damaged or destroyed. This church belongs to the 'Chorus' group for which you can purchase a special pass on...More

We really enjoyed walking around the Castello district of Venice, including the Arsenale area and all the way east to the Sant'Elena quarter. It was during this walk that we ended up on the isola di San Pietro where there were no other tourists at...More

thus us so beautiful! we stumbled onto it when getting lost (on purpose) in Venice. This neighborhood is so quiet and it's where the locals really are. The tower is lovely and again feels like a step back in time. (IT IS!)

We found this on Trip Advisor while in Venice. It was interesting because you only hear of Pisa as the only leaning tower, but so does this one. It's a ways away from the normal tourist areas and at one point we felt like outsiders,...More

within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over
one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime

criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
