  • The church is located next to the station. This is one of the first sights you will meet coming out of the station building. The main facade overlooking the Grand Canal at the Scalzi Bridge is made of marble and is the embodiment of the best traditions of the Venetian Baroque. Eaves, pilasters, semicircular arches, vaults with ornaments, reliefs and paintings inherent in the Italian Renaissance. The interior is amazing with its richness and beauty. The last 120th doge of the Venetian Republic is buried in the church of Santa Maria di Nazaret.

  • The church of the Scalzi, a stone's throw from the bridge of the same name, has the western side overlooking the forecourt of the station; he is therefore in a very ugly and unhappy position. You enter it, myself included, when you arrive too early at the station to catch the train. Then you stop here for a prayer and also for a visit. Visit that is worth it regardless. The entrance is free and a sign outside indicates the presence of frescoes of Tiepolo. The facade is 17th-century, adorned with typically Venetian late-Baroque statues. But the attention, inside, is magnetized by the altar, where the presbytery is overlooked by a canopy supported by massive dark red tortile columns. In the church there are statues of twelve hisses, five on the side and two on the bow of the canopy. In a side chapel is the tomb of Lodovico Manin, the last Venetian doge. One sign describes the sad story of this unfortunate doge and bears his last will.
