Religious Site · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Home to the remains of St. Nicholas, Chiesa di San Nicolo al Lido serves as one of Venice's traditional and symbolic boundaries. Originally constructed during the Middle Ages, much of the church's external architecture dates from the 16th and 17th centuries. For many sailors, this chapel was their final sight before leaving the city, and the relics of St. Nicholas, the patron saint of sailors, only reinforced its significance. Pay a visit to the historical building, located along the outskirts of the city near the airport, and you'll find a church rather plain in appearance, but featuring an ornate interior full of statues and reliefs. Note that the outer facade of the building remains unfinished.
