Absolutely stunning. If I had to choose one church to visit in Venice, that would be it. Lots and lots of interesting details to see. Absolutely do not miss this burial place of the Doges. You can... more »
This is quite simply, Incredible! The building is huge and beautiful. Sadly photography is not permitted inside so I cannot share any here... There is a queue to go inside but it moves along with good pace, there is a small charge to go through the top part of the Basilica out onto the roof terrace and through the museum section. Please be aware this has very steep old stone stairs NOT suitable for small children or pushchairs etc.
Really nice pizza and also nice service. Additionally it's not to expensive so perfect! Thanks
