Dominating the eponymous Campo Santi Giovanni e Paolo, the church is one of the most well known religious hubs in the city.

One of the city’s most important examples of medieval architecture, Santi Giovanni e Paolo is considered the Pantheon of Venice because all the Venetian doges, starting from the 13th century, are buried here, together with numerous other notable personages.This site might be marked in Venetian dialect as ‘san ZaniPolo’ on the city’s maps.
