This absolutely splendid Basilica is a must-see when in Venice. It's one of the oldest and largest churches in the city and contains priceless artworks from world-known artists.
It took over a hundred years to build this extraordinary church; the works were finished around the year 1440. Although the gothic exterior is rather plain, the interior makes up for it.
The only still-in-place rood screen in Venice found its place here. The church is also known for the artworks that can be viewed here: Donatello's first documented work in the city - the figure of St. John the Baptist, Alessandro Vittoria's The Risen Christ and St. Jerome, works of Titian and much more.
The basilica is located about a 10-minute walk away from Stazione di Venezia (railway station), but you can also get here by waterbuses 1 and 2, station S. Toma' DX.
