San Giorgio Maggiore is located on the island across the canal from San Marco square.

Built between 1559 and 1580 by architect Andrea Palladio.

I would reccommend a visit in order to get a different aspect on the rest of Venice and to see the ornately carved choir stalls.

The church contains two works of art by Tintoretto - The gathering of Manna and The last supper.

Directions: take the 82 Vaporetto from Zaccaria.

Opening times - 9.30am - 12.30pm
2.30pm - 5pm.
