    Basilica di San Marco

    San Marco 328, Venice 30124 Italy
    4.5
    94 reviews

    Amazing, iconic architecture that left me breathless. After seeing countless churches that all seem to run together after a while, this unique Byzantine structure really stood out.

    Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari

    San Polo, Venice, Province of Venice, Italy
    4.5
    11 reviews

    I absolutely adore Frari. The funerary monument to Antonio Canova lies within the great walls of this Basilica. Only the sculptor's heart is entombed there, however. Many famous and historic tombs can also be viewed. It's well worth the visit. The Basilica itself is enormous and stunning to behold.

    Palazzo Ducale

    Sestiere San Marco 1, Venice 30124 Italy
    4.5
    36 reviews

    The Palazzo Ducale, built in Venetian Gothic style, was the residence of the Doge of Venice, the supreme authority of the Republic of Venice. It opened as a museum in 1923. The regular tour of the Doge's Palace is interesting enough. Within this Complex's Gothic civic architecture, every stone, passageway and artwork seemed to evoke the power that the former ...

    Il Ghetto

    Fondamenta di Cannaregio, Venice 30121 Italy
    4
    17 reviews

    I often have strong literary associations with places that I have visited in Europe. For Venice the obvious connection is the "Merchant of Venice," which in part focuses on the Jewish ghetto in the city. My wife and I visited the ghetto around Christmas and we were intrigued by the site of Menorahs and Stars of David as well as ...

    Chiesa di Santa Maria dei Miracoli

    A beautiful, very different looking church. I read about it in City of Falling Angels and was delighted to see it in person after finishing the book.

    Piazza San Marco

    Piazza San Marco, Venice 30124 Italy
    4.5
    163 reviews

    Yes, Piazza San Marco is indeed the "Drawing Room of Europe" and a great place to gaze at the Church of San Marcos, the Doges Palace (we took a tour this time around), the Clock Tower, the Campanile, and Napoleon's hand in Plaza building and the returned collared that were previously spirited away to France. Erin, Jim, Gayle and I ...

    Bridge of Sighs

    Ponte dei Sospiri or Bridge of Sighs ... the final walk of prisoners across the water to what was most likely their end. Gayle saw from the outside and walked it from the inside.

    La Pietà

    Riva degli Schiavoni 4149, Venice 30122, Italy
    4.5

    I wish we had been able to see a concert at this church, as they are supposed to be great. However, even the exterior is worth visiting.

    St Mark's Campanile

    Piazza San Marco, Venice, Italy
    4.5
    2 reviews

    Gayle and I got to see the Campanile up close in the Square, from the Ferry, and coming and going on our Cruise ship. It's one of the many signature views of Venice that's hard to miss and shouldn't.

    Peggy Guggenheim Collection

    Sestiere Dorsoduro 701, Venice 30123 Italy
    4.5
    29 reviews

    At first I didn't want to "waste" my vacation time in Venice by going to this museum. I figured, why the heck should I pay to see some great American artworks after I flew all this way to Italy? Well, if you are a fan of abstract expressionism (in particular Calder or Jackson Pollock), then this museum is a MUST ...

    Canals of Venice

    Venice, Italy
    4.5
    34 reviews

    One of the best ways to experience Venice is in a boat. I've done it in a taxi and in a Gondola and both were incredible. There's no other way to really see all of the architecture and beautiful decay of this city.

    Chiesa del Santissimo Redentore

    Redentore, Sestiere Giudecca, Venezia, Italy
    4
    4 reviews

    This votive Church was built in the late sixteenth century, and by votive I mean this Church was dedicated in fullfillment of a vow. In 1575 Venice was decimated by the plague, losing almost 40% of it's population. The Venice governmnent decided to build a Church for those that perished. It was built by the great Palladio!

    Golden Altar Piece at San Marco Basilica

    Piazza San Marco, Venice 30124 Italy
    5
    12 reviews

    The golden altar of San Marco is a must see for anyone visiting Venice. It's simply stunning. Be aware - they say no photography in the basilica... so keep your camera hidden and be stealthy.

    I've been here twice in my visits to Venice and did the tour both times. Excellent museum and a lot of very interesting history to be learned about Venetian Jews!

    San Zanipolo (as it's known in Venetian dialect) is one of the largest churches in Venice and is categorized as a minor basilica. More than 25 Doges are interned here.

    Chiesa di San Giorgio Maggiore

    3.5
    9 reviews

    As seen from the top of the Campanile in S. Marco. Incidentally, the best way to get an incredible view of San Marco (and Venice, as a whole) is from the top of the bell tower on San Giorgio Maggiore.

    I wasn't able to go into the Chiesa di San Moise - it seems like I missed going into most of the churches in this area by just a slim amount - but the facade is absolutely gorgeous. It's a great example of baroque art and combined with the busy piazza in front of it and the bustling gondola stand ...
