Spectacular Venice

The best way to explore Venice: Do not use a paper map. Instead use of a satellite GPS map telling you which direction you are walking. I highly recommend loading Ulmon CityMaps2Go Offline onto your mobile device (https://res.ulmon.com/citymaps2goforward.html).

Santa Maria di Nazareth Church (Chiesa di Santa Maria di Nazareth), a catholic church, also called Church of the Scalzi being the seat in the city of the Discalced Carmelites religious order.


San Simeone Piccolo (Chiesa di San Simeon Piccolo), built between 1718 and 1738, is situated opposite Santa Lucia station and facing the Grand Canal. The dome of San Simeon Piccolo is large and prominent that the church becomes one of the famous landmarks of Venice. Not much clarity regarding the opening hours of the church doors.

Unusual for Venice, this church has an underground crypt. For EUR1:00, you get a candle and entry to explore the underground crypt.


Saint Mark’s Basilica (Basilica of San Marco) is one of the most iconic cathedral in Venice islands. The Basilica is situated at St. Mark’s Square beside the imposing 16th century square tower, St Mark’s Campanile.

Venice is one of the places around the world which is beautiful during the day just as it is amazingly beautiful by Night. This is my 2nd trip to Venice and I have yet to cover all of Venice islands and other islands beyond the bridges and canals. I hope to be back one day. Thank you for the amazing hospitality.
