  • One of the main points of the Venice sightseeing. (But the group here, it seems, do not lead) the full name-Church of Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari. Built in the Gothic style, was built in XIV-XV centuries, belongs to the Franciscan order. Here at the altar, is the famous canvas by Titian's "assumption of the Virgin", and in the left nave, another of his works, "Pesaro Madonna." There are also the altar triptych of the Madonna and child, Angels making music and saints Giovanni Bellini, tombstone, monument, Tician, Kanove and many other remarkable works of art. Examination of all the beautiful paintings and sculptures (they cost!) will take at least an hour.

  • invitation to be amazed and admire the thick canvas 10 meters behind the altar maggione, and invitation to enter inside the sacristy to be dazzled by Bellini at the bottom of the altar.

  • One of the most beautiful churches, with so much detail and so much to do is go and enjoy with some time, the details and the story became one of the most beautiful interesting churches to visit.

  • This place is incredibly gorgeous in and out. Definitely worth a 3 euro entrance fee. Must be seen!
  • This is our favorite church in the world. The sculptures are incomparable to any others. It's not easy to find but well worth the adventure of finding and expiring.
  • A beautiful and majestic building with fantastic works of art, amongst which are two outstanding paintings of Tiziano. A Basilica definitely worth visiting, that I am especially bond to, considering it is where my parents got married.
  • Wonderful art, sculpture, altars, painting by Bellini etc. Massive sculpture dedicated to Titian done in mid-1800s on right side near entrance. Definitely worth the 3 euros and taking half an hour. The back of the basilica is across a tiny plaza from Scuola Grande di San Rocco.
  • A hidden gem of Venice - a nominal fee to enter the church. Contains amazing art in situ so you can really appreciate the experience. Be sure to download Rick Steves' free MP3 audio tour on the Basilica. It provides the perfect context and situates this place in history and art.
