Villa Orange:5. In the quiet part of Cannareggio you can find the beautiful Madonna dell'Orto church (Campo Madonna dell’Orto). The painter Tintoretto lived nearby and his grave is in this church, as well as some of his paintings. Remarkable fact: in 1993 a painting by Bellini was stolen here. What remains is an empty frame with a photo of the original below. www.madonnadellorto.org
Image - Campo dei Mori
Campo dei Mori
Villa Orange:6. On the Campo dei Mori you can see statues of four Moors in the facades of the houses. The word Moor comes from Morea, Ventian dialect for Peloponnese (Greece). The statues are of the Arabian brothers and merchants Rioba, Sandi and Alfani Mastelli who fled Venice around 1112. They traded in silk and spices. The fourth statue is perhaps one of their servants.

3749 Ponte Chiodo
Villa Orange:7. The bridge without railing, Ponte Chiodo (Rio di San felice, Venezia), is not really a sight, but it is the only remaining bridge without railings in Venice. In the past, all bridges looked like this. The name comes from a Venetian family who once owned the bridge.

Church of Santa Maria Assunta - The Jesuits
Villa Orange:8. The enormous baroque facade of the Maria Assunta church, also called I Gesuiti (Campo dei Gesuiti, Venezia), is nothing compared to the abundance inside. This large church is richly decorated with white and green marble. The highlights are paintings from Tintoretto (Assunzione della Vergine Maria) and Tiziano Vecellio (Martirio di San Lorenzo).
Image - Basilica dei Santi Giovanni e Paolo
Basilica dei Santi Giovanni e Paolo
Villa Orange:9. The Gothic Santi Giovanni e Paolo church is also called San Zanipolo. This church was built by Dominicans in the 13th century. In this church are buried 25 Doge's (= heads of state of the Venetian Republic). You can also see paintings from Veronese, Tiepolo and Bellini here. A lurid detail is that one of the relics of this church is the left foot of Santa Caterina. www.basilicasantigiovanniepaolo.it

Villa Orange:13. Santa Maria dei Miracoli is a small white church in a beautiful location (Campo dei Miracoli, Venezia). The walls are richly decorated with marble, inside and outside. The church was once built to accommodate a painting by Nicolò di Pietro (Madonna con Bambino - Maria with child). Miracles were attributed to this 15th century glory and hangs above the altar. There are also many pagan symbols in the church. The church is known as a wedding church; many foreigners get married here.

Ca' d'Oro
Villa Orange:14. The Ca' d'Oro, with its striking Gothic facade, is certainly one of the most beautiful palaces on the Grand Canal. This 15th-century palazzo houses an art collection. In addition to many religious paintings from the 15th and 16th centuries, you can also admire fragments of frescoes by Titian. The view from the balconies and the huge mosaic floor outside make it a special place to visit.

Villa Orange:15. Venice’s perfume tradition has ancient roots. By the 18th century, the city became one of the most important centers for trading perfumes and pharmaceutical products, thanks to merchants importing spices and essential oils from the Orient. Spezieria all’Ercole d’Oro – established in 1650 – reached great success and popularity. The furniture and paneling are in walnut root wood, rich in details The walls feature four allegorical statues by Pietro Zandomeneghi, representing Botany, Medicine, Surgery and Physics. Over the years Spezieria hired skilled chemists and pharmacists.

Villa Orange:16. The facade of the church of Santa Maria di Nazareth is late Venetian baroque. The church was consecrated in 1705 and underwent a major restoration by the Austrian government between 1853 and 1862. The church is decorated with sumptuous Corinthian marble, an impressive organ, statues and frescoes. It gives a feeling of opulence and amazement to the visitor.
