Well, we did not manage to get in, as there were other places as priority. But this was the first object, that we had to find, so we could find our hotel. Yes, I did look it up in map, but I got lost, accidentally. Worth seeing, maybe next time.

This is a lovely church. Huge Tintorettos and many other lovely art. Don't miss Madonna del Orto herself, and learn her story. It is really rather lovely. If you look at her closely you can imagine the sculptor throwing her away in a rage. She is completely out if proportion and all the more lovely for it.

Most come here for the - frankly rather dark and dull - Tintoretto painting. However I'd say forget that and head into the delightful hidden courtyard next door (right of the front door). This 'campo' was restored by the 'Venice In Peril' folks, and there is now the most delightful set of cloisters where you can sit (for free) in... More

Tintoretto's local church, and the site of his tomb, is right up at the northern edge of the islands. where Canareggio meets the lagoon. It is thirty minutes from San Marco and twenty from the Rialto: a 'must see' if you have come to appreciate Tintoretto and a church worth a walk. [TIP: make sure you have a decent map... More

This church is highly decorated with enormous paintings but the best part is the lovely 14th century sculptured Madonna by Giovanni de Santi. It had originally been commissioned for another church but rejected, so the sculptor put the statue in his own garden (orto in Italian). The sculptor’s wife noticed that it gave off strange glows at night, which were... More

If your visit to Venice has enhanced your appreciation of Tintoretto, this church is required. He is buried here (his home is nearby), and the church contains monumental paintings. His Last Judgment is especially powerful

This located about thirty minute walk from San Marcos square, It is worth the walk. And take a side walk through the old Jewish portion of town. If you are staying at the Boscolo Venezia it is only two blocks town the canal.

This is a church not to be missed (the English Church) - the Tintoretto's are lovely and it is quite something to be in the space where Tintoretto worshiped and in the neighborhood where he wandered. His home is just over the bridge in Calle dei Mori.

We went when it was supposed to be closed so the place was empty and tranquil we had a quick look around before exiting.

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighbourhood Profile
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
