Tiny Hippo Tours the Churches of Venice

Tiny Hippo and Church of San Giorgio Maggiore

Welcome to Venice, I the Tiny Hippo, will be your esteemed guide! Let us start a whirlwind tour of the churches of this ancient city!

Santa Maria dei Miracoli, Venice

This is the lovely church of Santa Maria dei Miiracoli, just after sunrise.

San Nicolò da Tolentino

Here is the church of San Nicolò da Tolentino, my favorite part is the clothes line on the left.

San Trovaso, Venice

San Trovaso has two identical facades. This was so that the two rival Venetian factions, the Nicolotti and Castellani, could each have their own entrance of equal importance. I wonder where the Tiny Hippos enter?

San Rocco, Venice

San Rocco is one of five plague churches in Venice. These votive churches were built as symbols of thanks for the city’s deliverance from plague epidemics.

San Salvador Sculptures

What a fabulous hat that man has!

I hope you enjoyed this quick peek at some of the churches of Venice! See you next time for more adventures with your favorite Tiny Hippo!
