San Giorgio Maggiore - Church and Island, Venice: 45 reviews and 96 photos
Chiesa di San Giorgio is situated on the island of the same name which is right after Guidecca Island.
Hippolyte Taine, who visited Venice in 1864, was dazzled by the colours of the lagoon. He, wrote that when evening falls, the churches and palaces grow huge and float on the water like ghoasts. The view of the island of San Giorgio seems to confirm his impression.
The church is Greek-styled with high belltower and huge monastery in adjacent.
Address: Island of San Giorgio
