  • We visited this church quite by chance. She was on our travels and on our building pass remarkably bright, which is significant compared to the other darker churches visited previously. We could visit the choir to admire the paintings of the 12 Apostles. Interesting explanations in french.

  • Church with a Baroque façade shaped like a temple, in my opinion quite heavy. Within many works and the graves of two Doges. It is not those who impressed me particularly

  • The only complaint to this church that is part of the Chorus Pass is his "early" closing time (17 h). Located on the edge of the Grand Canal, it has an elegant façade of baroque style, made in 1710 by Domenico ROSSI, many decorations in marble and the elegant triangular pediment. The Interior, with a single nave of Palladian type, directed by Giovanni GRASSI, turns very bright with large windows and cream the color of its walls. It contains a cycle of 12 paintings of the same size, made by PIAZZETTA, RICCI, TIEPOLO... At the center of the span, is the tomb of the doge Alvise MOCENIGO wearing an amazing and touching inscription in latin: "With the body, are buried here fame and vanity".

  • I need to start by sharing a story about my son's skin allergies!!! I was concerned coz of the Europe Summers are hot....and his allergy coming back...he experiences sharp stabbing burning pains, on his back....that prevented him from going outside on really hot days. Now in saying that....we visited San Stae Church.....in Venice back in 2013, it was just breathe taking!! I felt a presents like nothing other, just felt inner peace...as we walked around the church....my son wanted to like up some candles...and we did. We left shortly after and I kid you not....we experienced a miracle...no other way to call it....my son doesn't have the skin allergy anymore!! Amen :)
  • Marvellous facade! Some works of art worth seeing on the inside. The church is often closed.
  • First of all - I'm completely unreligious man. But... in this church I've got some feeling... like someone is watching on me... someone from outside this world. It was scary and miraculous experience in the same time.
  • Beautiful church right by the water!
  • Very nice

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.
