"San Giorgio Maggiore - a different view of Venice" San Giorgio Maggiore by suvanki
San Giorgio Maggiore Travel Guide: 20 reviews and 40 photos
Christmas Day 2008, I visited this small island for the first time.
The Island and its landmark church had featured as a backdrop to the many photographs that I've taken from the waterfronts of San Marco and Castello over the years, (I'd taken many photos in the early hours of this morning, after attending Christmas Eve Midnight Mass in Basillica San Marco) but I'd never had the time to visit.
My main reason for taking the short trip was to enjoy the views from the top of the churches campanile (bell tower).
The fog that I had arrived to, a couple of days ago had finally lifted, being replaced by a sunny clear blue sky - Hoorah!
- Pros:Views from the Camponile, Interesting church for architecture and Art.
- Cons:Can't think of any!
- In a nutshell:Don't queue for the Campanile in Piazza San Marco- come here instead!
Most people probably visit this church after having viewed it from across the water, and been attracted to its Palladian... more travel advice
Again, unless you're berthed up in your yacht/ Gin Palace in the marina on this island- there's no where to eat or... more travel advice
