A Canal Runs Beneath It...
This photo of Santo Stefano is taken from a bridge behind the church and shows why this church is unique. It is the only one in Venice that is built over a canal. Sometime in the 18th century, the church expanded over the Rio del Santissimo di San Stefano. So, if you duck, it's possible to go under the church!
