The first time we were in Venice was 27 years ago, when my husband was attending a conference there. My then 4-year-old daughter and I wandered around Venice without a map while he was in the conference, and one day we stumbled on this church. I thought it was beautiful inside and wanted to take my husband there when he had free time, but I wasn't able to find it again. Fast forward to 2014 and we finally returned to Venice (without our daughter). With the help of the Internet, I was able to locate the church and take him to it. I was afraid it would not live up to my memory, but it did. Although there were other tourists there, it is far less crowded than the main tourist areas, and the neighboring square seems to be a hangout for local moms and their children.
Although we didn't get gelato at the Rosa Salva Gelateria Bar that is in the square, we were happy to find that they had decent WC facilities that you could use without buying something. Just walk in to the left of the gelateria counter and turn right--the toilets are in the back and are free.
