You will be stunned the first glance on that spectacular ceiling. Trust me on this. Whatever frescos you have seen in Rome/Florence may be less attractive after you see this great piece of art. Photos prohibited so please Google for relevant photos. It may take...More

San Pantalon is the Sistine Chapel of Venice, may be even better! It is absolutely stunning! The church looks very ordinary from the outside, but it's another world inside.

Leave the main tourist areas to visit this building. The interior is very good and should nit be missed.

The exterior of the church isn't looking good, the facade look's incomplete. But wait until you see that amazing ceiling! Pictures are not allowed, but once all the other visitor gone, I ask politely, in the best Italian that I can, if I could just...More

The true beauty of this place is its splendorous painted ceiling. It is painted so as to make believe that the actual ceiling is being risen up and expanded. Really great piece of work. Although it is free to get in, there is a full...More

Although we had stayed nearby last year, we missed this fantastic church. As with the church in nearby Toletino the outside is very plain, but inside is just amazing. Costs 50 cents to light the ceiling for the most stupendous artwork ever. How did Fumiani...More

You need a guide or guide book to give you interesting info for this. When you hear the stories, whether true or not, your imagination takes you even further.

There is a crack on the church caused by an earthquake but the church is stil stable. Step inside for a spectacular experience, the painting on the ceiling as beautiful, well worth a visit.

Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood 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 neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob

The church is open all day but avoid the times when church services are on. Have some change ready for the light machines. Enjoy!
