Church of Santi Giovanni e Paolo

Recommended
Built by the Dominicans from 1240 to 1430, this is the largest Gothic church in Venice. Its solemn character is derived from its historical role as doges' pantheon. The impressively spacious and light interior layout comprises a nave and two aisles preceding a transept which gives onto five apses. In the Rosary Chapel, note Veronese's New Testament scenes, and the St Vincent Ferrer polyptych by Giovanni Bellini (first altar on the right).
