The Tour

Cannaregio is one of the most beautiful and quietest area of Venice.

Campos, gardens, long and sunny quaysides, narrow straight alleyways will lead us to discover one of the most surprising churches of the city, the so-called “Madonna dell’Orto” (Madonna of the vegetable garden) church.

Outside and inside, a serie of games will take the families involved in discovering the meaning and the beauty of the artworks.

Madonna dell’Orto

Surprising Gothic architecture, suddenly appears from the quiet of the district.

Great masterpieces are visible inside, among them, the huge paintings by Tintoretto which decorate the chancel, and the amazing altarpiece by Cima da Conegliano.

Campo dei Mori

Far from the crowded areas, the small campo is curious for some statues of foreign merchants placed here a long time ago. Close to it stands Jacopo Tintoretto’s house, a nice Gothic building, characterized by other sculptures and reliefs.
