4.5/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web
Set foot into a site with a combination of late-Gothic and Renaissance architecture at Chiesa di San Zaccaria, a church dedicated to the prophet Zechariah, father of John the Baptist and Biblical author. As you walk through you will notice the walls covered entirely in artwork and beautifully lit up by the tall floor-to-ceiling Gothic windows, quite uncommon in this architectural style. The main artistic feature is the late work by Giovanni Bellini. For a fee, enter the small chapel with ornate altarpieces, which offers an optional audioguide that comes in four languages. Don't miss the altar under which Zechariah's body is said to lie. While smaller than some other churches in the area, this one stands out with its peaceful atmosphere and lack of crowds. Make Chiesa di San Zaccaria a centerpiece of your Venice vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Venice holiday planner.

  • Tucked away on a small square, this church has a beautiful interior and is home to Bellini's painting "Madonna and Saints" as well as the cript of San Zaccaria. 
  • A church festooned with gorgeous paintings (including a Van Dyck) and other hidden treasures. Be sure to pay the 1.50 Euros and see the little museum that's attached to the church. 
  • It is near the SzentMárk square, the ut is also very pleasant. The main treasure is a wonderful painting, which is which.

  • Visit the basement, over 1000 years old. More often than not the high tide pushes water into it.
  • stunning bellini painting that should not be missed!
  • Is not a very popular place, but i think is interesting.
  • This is a must see in Venice. for 1.5 Euro's you get to go into the "basement" of the Church. This is the site of a 1000 years old church foundation with amazing history
  • Magnificent fasade
