  • Young girl at the ticket office for the da vinci show in the church definitely has an attitude problem! She was rude to every single customer. In between rude replies she was busy on her iphone. The show itself was ok-ish but very basic... Done in 5 minutes.. hardly worth your time or money. Da vinci deserves better!
  • one of my favourites in venice. great views all around
  • Charming church in the equally tranquil and charming Campo San Barnaba FILLED with hands on AMAZING replicas of Leonardo Da Vinci's machines that have been reproduced from his codices! My son closed the place down...couldn't tear him away. Open 7 days 9:30-19:30. Vaporetto line 1- Ca Rezzonico stop.
  • Great church! This is the church that was used in the filming of the movie Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Where it was supposedly a library with catacombs underneath.
  • Nice spot
