Create an itinerary including Chiesa di San Sebastiano
Discover notable works by Paolo Veronese at Chiesa di San Sebastiano, which is filled with paintings, ceiling canvases, and frescoes by the Renaissance artist. One of Venice's "plague churches" constructed to placate divine punishment sent in the form of pestilence, this structure also houses several works by Tintoretto and Titian. Its plain facade belies an abundance of artistic masterpieces inside, created by some of Italy's most celebrated painters. Pay special attention to Veronese's paintings near the altar, in which a bound Saint Sebastian confronts his tormentors. Before you leave, pay homage to Veronese by visiting his tomb, located just left of the presbytery. By using our Venice trip planning website, you can arrange your visit to Chiesa di San Sebastiano and other attractions in Venice.

  • Some Reviewers in the past few years had complained that there was "restoration work going on" and their visit was "not worth it." In fact, whoever couldn't see it back then should return right...

  • Richly decorated, and boasting a gorgeous ceiling, this is one of the most impressive churches in Venice. Part of the Chorus circuit.

  • Exceptional. Beats the Veronese at the Accademia, the Louvre or the National Gallery. Beware, only cash payments accepted. We did not have enough cash, so the gentleman selling entrance tickets made us pay 5€ instead of 12€. He possibly pocketed the money, though, as no receipts or tickets got issued…!
  • Watched a Christmas concert at night which is very Impressive.
