A stone's throw from the Doge's Palace and Bridge of Sights, the San Zaccaria Church is another place not to be missed. This place of worship was once the most relevant female religious institute of Venice. Closely linked to the Doge and the Venetian nobility, it is among the most valuable churches in the city. The inside is rich in artistic masterpieces and is a burial place for many Venetian Doges. Another unique peculiarity of the church is the crypt, where the Corps of San Zaccaria rest. However, it is also known as the Flooded Crypt. Situated below sea level, the water is present permanently in the crypt and creates an unusual yet fascinating atmosphere. During the exceptional events of acqua alta or floods, the water level increases even more. The entrance to the church is free of charge. You have to pay an additional fee only for the crypt. You can get the tickets only on-site. Photos: Graziella Cogolati (Instagram: @grazy54)
