"SAN GIORGIO MAGGIORE – IT’S IN VENICE!" San Giorgio Maggiore by DAO
San Giorgio Maggiore Travel Guide: 20 reviews and 40 photos
It sounds like some far away island with a monastery. It isn’t. It is small, picturesque and right in the heart of Venice. Just 1 single Vaporetto (water bus) stop away from St Mark’s Square is the fantastic little island of San Giorgio Maggiore. It only takes about 5 minutes to get here and you have the best view of St Marks Square and the centre of Venice. You can take the lift up to the top of the church of San Giorgio (3 Euros) and really see the whole of the scenic part of Venice. You can even see the utterly humongous cruise ships in the outer harbour and even the train lines and road leading through the lagoon to this city without streets. Go on, have a visit!
