Grand Canal from vaporetto - Venice

VENICE (VENEZIA)

<< previous | PAGE 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

For a comprehensive list of the city’s monuments and churches, it’s better to show them in chronological order:

Medieval times correspond to the churches of S. Giovanni e Paolo (S.John & Paul) (1246-1430), S. Pietro & Paolo (S.Peter & Paul) (18th Century), S. Maria Gloriosa dei Frari (1336-1492), S. Maria del Carmine (14th Century), S.Stefano (S.Stephen) (14th-15th Century), as well as the Arsenale.
Renaissance times correspond to the churches of S. Maria dei Miracoli (1489), S. Salvador (15th Century), S. Sebastiano (S.Sebastian) (16th Century), of the Redentore (Saviour) (1577-92), S. Giorgio Maggiore (S.George the Great) (1565-83), whilst the great votive temple of S. Maria delle Salute (St.Mary of Health) (1631-81) is an example of Venetian Baroque.
The offices of the so called Scuole, (Schools) (seats of the old associations for charity and aid to the poor) like those of S. Giovanni Evangelista (S. John the Evangelist) (1481-98), S.Rocco (1517-49) and of S. Giorgio degli Schiavoni (S. George of the Slavonians) (16th Century) are noteworthy.
The Jewish presence in Venice has a multi-secular history, represented by the very beautiful Ghetto with its Synagogues of the Scuola Spagnola (Spanish School) and Scuola Levantina (Levantine School) (17th Century).

Along the Grande Canal (the main artery of the City) you can admire some of the most famous Palaces:
Ca’ Vendramin-Calergi (1500-9), the Ca’ d’Oro (1420-34), Ca’ da Mosto (13th Century), (1628-1710), Ca’ Foscari (15th Century), Ca’ Rezzonico (1649-18th Century), the Palaces of Loredan (12th-13th Century), Contarini-Fasan (1475), Giustinian (15th Century), Mocenigo (16th Century), Grimani (1556), Grassi (1749), with the homonymous, declarative seat of the Palazzo Dario (1487).

Many of the historical palaces house important museums: in St. Marks Square, the complex of the Museo Correr, hosts a rich picture-gallery and the Archelogical Museum; Ca’ Rezzonico and the museum of the Venetian 18th Century; the Ca’ D’Oro hosts the prestigious Franchetti collection; Ca’ Pesaro and the Museum of Modern Art. The Galleries of the Accademia, the Art-gallery of the Querini Foundation and the unparalleled Peggy Guggenheim Collection of contemporary art, complete this, obviously, synthetical panorama.

Two simple tips to help you understand the particularity of the city: buy a return trip along the entire Grande Canale in a Vaporetto (waterbus) and then see Venice from high up in the Tower of S. Marks. An even better view would be to enjoy the panorama by viewing the city from the heights of the S. Giorgio (S.George) Tower.
