  • Not easy to find as the area is dense with buildings and is entered through an arch. Inside a remarkable Titian's altarpiece depicting the Saint. Nice bell tower that is the original one.

  • Inserted into a set of buildings, this church, rebuilt in 1514 by the SCARPAGNINO, after a fire which ravaged the District of Rialto, is difficult to identify. The 4 aisles covered with barrel vaults converge toward the Central cupola with frescoes (1531), representing in particular the 4 evangelists and 4 doctors of the Church, have been executed by the PORDENONE. The building is mainly known for the magnificent altarpiece "San Giovanni Elemosinario doing charity" of TITIAN adorning the high altar. On the right side, one can admire a beautiful picture of the PORDENONE "Saint Catherine, saint Sebastian and saint Roch". Number of other very interesting paintings adorn the walls of this small church (one of the 17 included in the Chorus Pass).

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.
