  • Chiesa di Santa Maria Formosa is just another church, and the interesting thing is that they charge you if you want to have a look inside. We only looked at it from the outside and quickly had a peek ...  more »
  • In the field of the same name, in the sestiere of Castello, this original church, erected in 1492 in the place occupied by another of the 7th century, presents the peculiarity of having two facades: a Renaissance style overlooking the canal, and other Baroque, which overlooks the square. Another of its curiosities is the grotesque figure placed on the door of the belfry, which was intended to scare away the devil. Inside are a polyptych by Palma Vecchio, dedicated to Santa Barbara, as well as a triptych of mercy, work of Bartolomeo Vivarini, the last supper by Leandro Bassano and the Virgin with child and Santo Domingo, by Tiepolo in the oratory. Opening hours: Monday to Saturday from 10.30 to 16.30 hours. It is closed on Sundays. The entry price is €3 adults and €1,50 reduced ticket. It can be accessed with the Chorus Pass, which for €12 the full ticket €8 reduced ticket or €24 the family ticket, allows us to access 18 churches dependent on the Patriarchate of Venice.

  • The Church was built in the late 15th century on the same square. Inside-rich painted interiors. There is a high tower with a clock. For this you will find the Bell Tower and the square and the Church.

  • You should circle around to get inside from the correct door. Impressive otherwise.
  • Beautiful and relatively empty. Nice place to see while the masses are overcrowding Plaza San Marco
  • Beautiful works of art in this important church.

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.
