All reviews equestrian statue buried here beautiful church burial place side chapels small entry fee final resting place castello district small square worth a visit lovely square the main tourist steeped in history old church off the beaten track walking tour homes
This huge brick built church is one of the largest in Venice. Situated in a square in Castelo . The church was completed in 1430. It had many monuments and paintings with a byzantine statue named Madonna della Pace.
The Basilica dei Santi Giovanni e Paolo is a large imposing church with a magnificent interior. The murals and sculptures are beautiful and the large open area at the entrance is unusual. Very impressive
Firstly, it's very easy to accidentally walk into the hospital right next door! Don't make that mistake! I was left very confused. But once I went in the appropriate door, I loved this Basilica - it's huge, beautifully light and airy, and really very stunning,...More
If you visit one church in Venice that is off the beaten track (with the wonderful hospital building -also worth a look, next door) make it this one. The size is staggering and it is steeped in history from the Doges burial caskets to immense...More
We visited here as part of the walking tour. The guide talked about the church and also told us that we should explore the area at a later time.
The gothic church is in a large square with a statue and a hospital.
We stumbled across this place on the Sunday afternoon as we had seen all the usual tourist traps and was spending some time just wandering, so glad we did! It is free to enter but they encourage a donation which I was more than happy...More
We loved the huge scale of the place. It felt very old also. The admittance fee seems absurd...it's not exactly on the main tourist track, and it is just a suggested amount (FYI). I asked for change back on the exact suggested amount and got...More
Don't let the outside of this church deceive you, it's utterly amazing on the inside. It has multiple naves, each with different floors all more amazing then the last, the soaring ceilings and windows are something to behold. Also a wonderful square with an outstanding...More
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.
