What are geocaches? Curious.

The great collection of Venetian art is in the Accademia Gallery at the foot of the Accademia bridge. Not far away, also on Dorsoduro, is the Peggy Guggenheim Museum of Modern Art if you are keen on 20th century art.

If you are taking the 41/42 vaporetto to Murano and get off at Museo landing stage then a short walk to your right down the canalside will take you to the excellent Glass Musuem. Another 100 yards will take you to the lovely church of Santi Maria e Donato with a fine mosaic floor laid c. 1140 AD.

I think the churches well worth visiting include, amongst a great many others, S. Maria d. Salute; San Sebastian for the decoration by Veronese; and the Frari for its fine collection of art.

If you are keen on art, Madonna dell'Orto church is well worth a visit. It was Tintoretto's parish church, he is buried there, and the church contains two fine paintings by him, a Last Judgement, and The Adoration of the Golden Calf. The church was restored by the Venice in Peril Fund some years ago.

You'll discover some beautiful, out of the way places just by getting off the "main" walking routes. Bring a map in case you get too lost, but there are signs to help you out.

If you're into shopping, it's definitely touristy, but check out the Rialto bridge and all the little shops.
