The facade of this church is so impressive that I just had to see inside. I was very impressed with the marble work and sculptures, more so than the paintings which are a little dark. Well worth the €3 entry.

It costs a few Euro per person to go inside and the church is closed around lunchtime. The church is different in its decor and style from most other churches in Venice (and the region). Very beautiful interior in a understated way. Fantastic light inside...More

The Gesuati or the Church of Santa Maria del Rosario is an imposing church facing the Giudecca Canal. The facade is currently going under restoration. There are many great works of art here including a ceiling painted by Tiepolo and a Tintoretto Crucifixion. The Gesuati...More

We took many pictures of the outside of this church. It was just after a rain and there was still a bit of morning mist in the air. The stone glistened and seemed to bring out even more beauty in the facade. We did not...More

This church is just one of many simply beautiful houses of god that you can see in Venice. Each one is different but everyone is truly stunning. This church is very big but has a lovely warm feeling to it & the monks didn't mind...More

While strolling up the Zattere, we came across this church (which was closed). We got chatting to an English couple who advised us to wait until it opened. The façade is quite beautiful and the interior contains many works of art. Worth a visit, if...More

For 3E entry fee, common for most churches in Venice, I saw Tiepolo's ceiling paintings and an altarpiece painting, Tintoretto's "Crucifixion", and several statues by Morlaiter, the foremost sculptor of his time. Tiepolo's 3 ceiling frescoes were exquisite. There was 1 large central painting with...More

We passed this church many times traveling up and down the canal. We came off the vaporetto at a stop directly in front of the church by happenstance and were so happy to be able to see the inside. Pretty statues.

Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
