The Merits of a Marital Tiff
|The Valier Monument, 1705-08, Santi Giovanni e Paolo|
The tomb, which can be found in the cavernous Dominican church of Santi Giovanni e Paolo, was the last and perhaps the most sumptuous of the great ducal tombs.

|The tomb of Doges Jacopo and Lorenzo Tiepolo, Santi Giovanni e Paolo|
The burial of such a high number of Venetian heads of state within its walls has earned the church the title 'the Pantheon of Doges'.
San Zanipolo also boasts the earliest extant Dogal tomb, that of Doge Jacopo Tiepolo (1229-49) and his son Lorenzo, who was also Doge (1268-75). The tomb can be found outside the entrance to the basilica.
