"The largest museum in Venice" is how this collection of 16 churches sell themselves, and they have a point: They combine unique architecture and spectacular art—something of a rarity to be found still in its original location. Highlights include the awe-inspiring Frari, where Titian and Canova are both buried; San Sebastiano, almost entirely decorated by Veronese; and Santa Maria dei Miracoli, a marble jewel box of a church, surrounded by canals and containing what's said to be a miraculous icon of the Madonna.
