  • Visa from above or from the bridges, the evening in that corner, lit by the headlights with a lot of green on the bend of the River, is a truly remarkable.

  • a beautiful church, but be careful when arriving from the rear we hit an entrance to a museum that sells the visit to the Museum and the Cathedral... small, Museum with little interest... the entrance to the Cathedral is on the other side and is FREE

  • Just outside the city, within walking distance from the Centre, the Church is worth a visit especially to appreciate the works of Tintoretto and Veronese.
