Campo dei Santi Giovanni e Paolo Venice


One of the largest churches in Venice, Campo dei Santi Giovanni e Paolo is also known as ‘the Pantheon of Venice’ because of the doges' tombs within. The site is an important tourist stop as it houses paintings such as Giovanni Bellini's The Polittico di San Vincenzo Ferreri and others.

In the square out front stands Andrea Verrocchio's monument to Bartolomeo Colleoni. This famous mercenary requested a statue in San Marco as his battle payment. The clever doge agreed, but instead of putting the figure on the piazza, he had it placed in front of the Scuola di San Marco (the San Marco School).
