Hidden Treasures of Venice

Our Android app for explorers just launched and already we have a really nice tour of Venice for you. Some of the hidden spots in the city have been mapped and geotagged on the pieces of the world. Let´s take a look at all the travel goodness you can follow around in Venice.

Shot from the pier at Salizada San Stae it shows the church of San Stae. The church in central Venice is named after Saint Eustachius and is a sight on the waterways since the 11th century. Not one of the main attractions in the city but nevertheless a beautiful piece that has passed the test of time.

Old fresco signage in the "backwaters" of the old merchant city. Taken on the waterway between the islands of Giudecca and Dorsoduro in the south of the city.

At the pier of Dorsoduro the southern end of the center islands

At the bridge of De Grandis Marina gondolas wait for travellers

San Simeone Piccolo, a sight to behold beyond the river as soon as you leave Venice train station via its southern plaza

Advertising done the venetian way with this statue for the Venice art exhibition number 55. The exhibition started in 1895 and has been taking place (nearly) every two years. This statue has been made for the Venice Bienalle of 2013 and can be found at Calle Traghetto Vecchio.

More hidden art in the city in the backyard of Museo Wagner. Hidden in plain sight by the large museum building you can only see it in its full glory by renting a boot and taking the waterway.
