DESTINATIONS italy venice san-giorgio-maggiore

Beckoning travelers across Saint Mark's Basin, sparkling white through the mist, is the island of San Giorgio Maggiore, separated by a small channel from the Giudecca. A tall brick bell toweron that distant bank perfectly complements the Campanile of San Marco. Beneath it looms the harmonious classical facade of one of Venice's greatest churches, San Giorgio Maggiore, the creation of Andrea Palladio.

You can reach San Giorgio Maggiore via vaporetto Line 2 from San Zaccaria.
