  • Wow! What a find this was. The devil is in the detail here. Take a closer look. There are some amazing paintings Some amassing carving and some amazing wood work. It’s well worth spending the money to pope in and see this as the craftsmanship inside is simply amazing. It may not have all the guided ceilings of other places but there is an elegance and beauty to the way this details work is on display.
  • The beauty of Venice is simply wandering and seeing what grabs your eye. I had never heard of this basilica, but was curious. So glad I went in and bought tickets. Titian's 'Annunciation' dominates the main alter...beautifully. his tomb is also inside. What a surprise, and a treasure.
