The churches of Venice guard of one of the world’s most extraordinary art treasures.
Thousands of years of faith and history are revealed on their walls. Paintings, sculptures, gold and precious fabrics are all to be found in these fascinating monumental buildings.

Discover 18th century innovation in the work of Tiepolo in the Church dei Gesuati and in the Church of San Polo, and find the paintings of Veronese in the Church of San Sebastiano.
