"View of Venice from SanGiorgio Maggiore" San Giorgio Maggiore - Church and Island Tip by AgentJX


Looking back toward Piazza San Marco from the top of the church. The two columns at the entrance to Piazza San Marco are capped by two of the most common symbols in Venice. The lion with the book represents Saint Mark, the patron saint of the city. The other is a person standing over an alligator.
