Looking over the Canal Grande from the famous Rialto Bridge in Venice.

"The Bridge of the Rialto is a name to conjure with, but, honestly speaking, it is scarcely the gem of the composition. There are of course two ways of taking it—from the water or from the upper passage, where its small shops and booths abound in Venetian character; but it mainly counts as a feature of the Canal when seen from the gondola or even from the awful vaporetto. The great curve of its single arch is much to be commended, especially when, coming from the direction of the railway-station, you see it frame with its sharp compass-line the perfect picture, the reach of the Canal on the other side. But the backs of the little shops make from the water a graceless collective hump, and the inside view is the diverting one." (Henry James: Italian Hours, 1909).

Inside the church of Santi Apostoli in the Cannaregio district of Venice.

The Chiesa dei Santi Apostoli di Cristo, commonly called Santi Apostoli, is one of the oldest churches in the city although it has undergone numerous changes since its foundation. The present building is the result of a major reconstruction project which was undertaken in 1575.

In the 7th century Venice was not yet a city, but a collection of small communities scattered throughout the lagoon. Saint Magnus, the Bishop of Oderzo, came to the lagoon and founded eight churches. According to a legend recounted by the historian Flaminio Cornaro, St. Magnus had a vision of the Twelve Apostles who commanded him to build a church on a site where he saw twelve cranes. The church presently stands on the Campo dei Santi Apostoli at the beginning of the Strada Nuova (New Road).

The church retains its 16th century layout: a single nave supported by two rows of columns. The ceiling fresco is Communion of the Apostles and the Triumph of the Eucharist by Fabio Canal. (Text based on Wikipedia).
