"Customs Inspections" Canal Grande Tip by mrclay2000

Canal Grande, Venice: 202 reviews and 354 photos

  S. Giorgio Maggiore and the Punta della Dogana
by mrclay2000
 
 

Just east of the Santa Maria della Salute is the Punta della Dogana, the former customs station for incoming vessels, now little more than a decorated extension of the islet marking the east entrance to the Grand Canal. In the distance on its eponymous island is San Giorgio Maggiore with its towering campanile. Add a customary gondola and again you have an ageless image of Venice.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
