Basilica Santa Maria della Salute – Where 12 Titian Paintings Hang Inside

Standing at the mouth of the Grand Canal, Basilica Santa Maria della Salute ‘s imposing Baroque structure looks like it guards the beautiful city of Venice. Its impressive dome was put in by the survivors of the plague. For their salvation, the city built the church as a dedication to Our Lady of Health/Deliverance (Salute).

One of the survivors of the plague was Titian who died at age 94. Inside, you’ll find 12 of his original paintings hanging at the sacristy.

Unfortunately for me, despite running as fast as I could, the basilica was already closed when I went there. Well, I arrived there at 4:45 PM but they told me that they won’t sell me tickets anymore because they’d be closing soon. And it was my last day in the city, so no more time to go back the next day.

Where to stay in Venice

Venice is expensive. Like, really expensive. That’s why a lot of backpackers would go on a day trip from Milan or from Bologna. If you decide to stay for a night or two, try Venezia Naturalmente. It’s the cheapest I could find in the city. It’s walking distance to everything, including the water taxi, San Marco Square and two major bridges that connect to the other side of the Grand Canal. The staff are friendly and they’d help you navigate the city. It’s clean and it’s also in a quiet area.
