San Giorgio Maggiore, Venice

4.8
You access San Giorgio Maggiore, a 16th-century Benedictine church, by boat. As you approach the island, notice how the structure's white marble facade contrasts with the blue of the lagoon. Enter to discover its equally bright interior. Admire several paintings by Venice-born Renaissance artist Tintoretto, as well as many other religious artworks. You can take the elevator up to the bell tower for a small fee to discover views of the Venetian Lagoon.

  • The island in it even does not interest: a bland church next to what we find in Venice, a small port... We climb the campanile (€ 6 per person), and once at the top, the clash, incredible, incredible! It is really worth, it's beautiful. Do not hesitate to spend your pennies for this (be careful they do not take the CB)

  • Is amazing place, very calm and the view from the tower is absolutely formidable! Highly recommended you have a 360 view of venece, lido and couple of other islands only 6 euros, worth it.
  • It's 9 euro for return trip . Can spend 1 hour. But visit it, nice small lagoon.
