We hadn’t been to the sesteri Cannaregio and our walk to this church led us there! One doesn’t need a lot of timer, but the marble inside and out is very impressive.
We learned there is a pass that gets you into 11 churches for...More

Although Venice doesn't lack for churches - some say this is the most beautiful church in the world - and I would not disagree. I have no religious beliefs, but when you see an exquisite structure like this, which consists of the same marble constructs...More
If you love Marble, this is the church for you. One of a kind in the WORLD. You will NEVER see a church like this again. Breathtaking. Terry Hunefeld and Ann Dunham, San Diego County, Anza Borrego Desert, California
Off the beaten path is this gem of a church. Not real large like some but unique and interesting. The marble itself is definitely worth seeing. Full of history. We sat for some time together in admiring.
This church really is a hidden gem. The inside and the outside are beautiful. It's one of the places I always reccomend visiting. It does cost 3.50 to go inside, and the church isn't very big but it is spectacular.
We took some time finding this church, as navigating Venice can sometimes be challenging. This church was quite a bit different than most in Venice, given the time of construction and inside building materials. Small and somewhat bland was our impression. If you have time...More
This really was an unexpected gem of a building, built of marble inside & out in the 1400's in the Renaissance style when the rest of Venice was building in Gothic architecture, 3€ entry as with most churches in Venice ( for restoration funds )...More
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby
shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighborhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
Probably Rialto or Fondamente Nuove as good as any - it's about halfway between. But the easiest way to find it is from the Church of Ss Giovanni e Paolo; from the square in front of it, a bridge leads across the canal to... More
Probably Rialto or Fondamente Nuove as good as any - it's about halfway between. But the easiest way to find it is from the Church of Ss Giovanni e Paolo; from the square in front of it, a bridge leads across the canal to Calle Larga Giacinto Gallina. Follow this till it reaches a little square. Turn sharp left and you'll see the back of Santa Maria dei Miracoli and theres]'s a little alley which takes you round to the front. Good Luck
