This absolutely splendid Basilica is a must-see when in Venice. It's one of the oldest and largest churches of this municipality, and contains priceless artworks from world-known artists. It took over a hundred years to build this extraordinary church; the works were finished around the year 1440. Although the gothic exterior is rather plain, the interior makes up for it. The only still-in-place rood screen in Venice found its place here. The church is also known for the artworks that can be viewed here: Donatello's first documented work in the city - figure of St. John the Baptist, Alessandro Vittoria's The Risen Christ and St. Jerome, works of Titian and much more. The basilica is currently under reconstruction, so some of the art pieces (for example Titian's Pesaro Madonna) are not visible to public. It's about a 10-minute walk away from Stazione di Venezia (railway station), but you can also get here by waterbuses 1 and 2, station S. Toma' DX.
