Basilica dei Santi Giovanni e Paolo Reviews
Beautiful and large basilica in Italian Gothic style, where there are monuments of various Venetian doges and a masterpiece by Bellini, not to forget the stained glass window with Murano glass. more »
An amazing church full of history. If you like this kind of stuff is amazing to visit! Also the staff around there are very polite, very nice and helpfull. 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
