Museo della Musica di Venezia

Museo della Musica di Venezia is a place that is a must stop for music lovers from all over. This museum is a true hidden gem, and although it has free entry, you will rarely encounter crowds here. The guide takes you around the premises, which feature vintage musical instruments, Venice being a centre for music after all. String instruments of every kind, from harps to violins can be found here, with some as old as the late 1600s.

Museo Dipinti Sacri Bizantini - Istituto Ellenico

Museo Dipinti Sacri Bizantini is tucked away on the first level of Istituto Ellenico, the base of Brotherhood of Scoletta di San Nicolò. Located next to San Giorgio dei Greci, this museum opened in 1959 and has a rich collection of pre and post Byzantine religious icons, vestments, manuscripts, textiles and crafts. These valuable acquisitions highlight the works of Greek artists like Theodoros Pulakis, Georgios Klontzas and Michele Damaskinòs. Exhibitions include a large variety of religious objects and artifacts from the life of Jesus and the Saints.

San Simeone Piccolo

San Simeone Piccolo is relatively new as compared to some of the ancient churches of Venice. It was constructed for 20 years from the period of 1718 to 1738. Architect Giovanni Antonio Scalfarotto experimented with the Neoclassical style of architecture and drew inspiration from other styles as well to create an eclectic and unique structure. Though not as well known as some other popular tourist religious sites in Venice, this church draws its fair share of visitors due to its proximity to one of the major railway stations in the city. It features a pistachio green metallic dome which eclipses its beautiful white façade. This church faces the Grand Canal and is easily accessible by water, road and railway.
