"Quite a fascinating island." Isola di San Giorgio Maggiore by Jerelis

Our curiosity had another huge impuls.

During our entire stay in the city of Venice we thought that the Isola di San Giorgio Maggiore was quite a fascinating place. We read that "The waters of the St. Mark's Basin mirror the majesty and splendour of the Basilica of San Giorgio Maggiore." and it's really like that. When we were at the Piazza San Marco (St. Mark's Square) we had a clear view at it and we're already wondering how it would be on that particular island. We wondered about it once again when we were all the way up the Campanile and looked down at it. During other hikes in the sestieres of Castello and Dorsoduro we still could see it. Finally our curiosity had another huge impuls when we stopped for a short time for the vaparetto stop on our way to the island of Lido. By then we made the decision, it was about time to visit the island.
