  Isola di San Giorgio Maggiore
by sim1

Favorite thing:

There is a beautiful church on the little island of San Giorgio Maggiore, which was designed by the great Renaissance architect Palladio. Unfortunately I didn't see the church itself, but only this view from a distance. There is so much to see in Venice, that it is impossible to see it all.

A nice thing to do is to take the elevator (for 2.50?) to the top of the belfry. The view from here must be great. You can see the greenery of the island itself, the lagoon, and the Doge's Palace across the way.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
