I stumbled upon this church by chance and I'm so glad I did. With its massive size and ornate ceilings, it is one of the highlights of my recent stay in Venice and had me saying "wow!!" when I entered. I Gesuiti is located right off Fondamente Nove, where you can catch a boat to get to Murano / Burano. An entrance fee of 1€ is requested to help in the maintenance of the church.

You would never know how beautiful the inside of this building is while just looking from the street. Fortunately my boyfriend said we should stop in. We were shocked with how beautiful it was.

A hidden gem close to Fondamenta Nove on the northern tip of the Castello district, containing paintings by Titian and Tintoretto which are easily seen. More incredible is the marble which gives the impression of textured wallpaper, and even more so, the curtain behind the pulpit which is hard to believe is really marble. Ornate ceiling and beautiful altar are bonuses for a visit which is 10 minutes from the centre, close to the vaporetto stop for Moreno and on the way to the ghetto, costs just €1, and will take as little as 10 minutes (or up to an hour if you’re so inclined) our of your trip to Venice.

From the outside the church is already impressive. From the inside it's even better than you would expect. Really a tressure! The only thing is that the church is open for a few hours a day, two hours in the morning and two in the afternoon so you have to plan ahead. It's worth the trip.
