Many of the Venice churches can be dark with poor lighting, but not Gesuiti. The light, airy feel of the church set a relaxing mood. Photos were also allowed. In particular the marble interiors and ceiling frescoes made Gesuiti unique. This is a top church to see in Venice.

Looking at its plain exterior, one would never even begin to imagine the beauty inside this magnificent church. From art treasures-a Titian & a Tintoretto no less-to fabulous marbles, sculptures, exquisite statuary, the spiral pillars holding up the marble canopy over the main altar, this church is indeed a hidden, unsung Venetian prize. And all it cost us was an entry donation of 2 euros each ! If you're ever in Venice, make sure you don't miss out on this precious labour of love.

Full of altars to the various saints and monuments lining the walls of this ancient place . A lofty interior . A haven of peace in this busy turbulent city and a place to take a rest.

Church in the northern part of Venice is very interesting architecture from outside and vivid Baroque interior. No description can be exact for this stone masterpiece. It is not all. Left from the entrance is altar with a huge painting. It is one of the best works of Titian. St Lawrence and his martyrdom is vivid, with special light from fire. Stop there and rest after walk around Venice. Check timetable before you go to the church. It is closed during lunch time. They ask for a small entrance fee.
