  • Wishing to enjoy the art of the Church suggest storing 50-minute cent coins, as in every Chapel paid illumination (some true cost 30 cents, but major works-for 50). The most amazing-Madonna Negroponte. She sits on a throne on the beautiful meadow, a sandy beach and the sea in which Angels float. It is floating in the sea rather than fly in the sky. This has nowhere to be seen.

  • Very nice together with the cloisters which seems out of time. Beautiful Bellini. Bring parts of 50 cents to illuminate the paintings which are beautiful but in the dark...

  • We stayed in the area near this church, as the door was open when I was walking past I decided to take look inside. The church is large and interesting, the whole front of the church was taken up by a...  more »

  • A massive church in a quiet cute area off tourist beat. They love Depeche Mode here
  • I felt very at home in this wonderful church. I hope I can fine it again don't forget to investigate the closters.
  • The church has a wonderfully peaceful atmosphere with very harmonious proportions. Depending on which version of history you believe, it was designed around De harmonia mundi's principle of three as a magical number or around the number seven. In either (or neither) case, the spacious and light-filled interior makes it quite extraordinary. Several paintings and one of the chapels have been restored by the wonderful Save Venice Inc.. There are several notable paintings but my favorite was the Virgin and Child Enthroned, by Fra Antonio da Negroponte. The color, details, and overall serenity are a wonderful complement to the church's general atmosphere. You can pay 0.20 euros to have a light on for about three minutes. While it's not absolutely necessary, it does let you enjoy the work more, and the funds help preserve the art.
  • For me, this church (monastery) is one of the top locations of Venice, forget the crowded downtown, this forgotten (or at least not that much visited) place is just an island of silence and beauty. Just enter the majestic church, or the convent garden, and you will be transported to another world... Plus, just by a chance, you can visit a small chapel only to realise that you are facing a masterpiece of Giovanni Bellini...
  • Wend your way through the narrow alleys to visit this architectural gem which houses some amazing artworks.

Where to stay in Venice

Save money and avoid tourist crowds by booking your accommodation outside the historical center of Venice. Central Venice is full of picturesque canals and narrow lanes, but it is also extremely noisy and hectic throughout the day and late into the night. You can explore the ancient city's charms at your own pace by staying at a comfortable B&B or small hotel located in the city's residential suburbs. To stay close to the finest beaches and restaurants, check into a hotel on the island of Lido, the city's famous seaside resort.
