Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Veneto / Province of Venice / City of Venice / Venice / San Giorgio Maggiore
You access San Giorgio Maggiore, a 16th-century Benedictine church, by boat. As you approach the island, notice how the structure's white marble facade contrasts with the blue of the lagoon. Enter to discover its equally bright interior. Admire several paintings by Venice-born Renaissance artist Tintoretto, as well as many other religious artworks. You can take the elevator up to the bell tower for a small fee to discover views of the Venetian Lagoon. Plan to see San Giorgio Maggiore and other attractions that appeal to you using our Venice trip planner.

San Giorgio Maggiore reviews
The trip by vaporetto, the church, the tower - I would rate it 10 stars when I could. We loved the views on a perfectly clear day, not many tourists, plenty of time to enjoy. Highlight of our Venice..... more »
Some parts are closed. The lack of access to all parts are worrying. The place has views or could be viewed for good views. more »
Stunning 360 degree views of the lagoon and Venice. I loved picking out all the islands dotted around. There was no line, and we waltzed right up. Plus, you get to take a lovely boat ride to get... more »
Andrea Palladio's creation in Venice is a simplistic Renaissance church in comparison to some of the more Byzantine opulence found elsewhere in Venice. Views from the Campanile are magnificent in all directions and if you tire of the crowds, take the vaporetto across and enjoy some beautiful artwork, an open air theatre Teatro Verde, and peacefulness. Admission to the bell tower is minimal where you can gaze down on the ritzy Hotel Cipriani, art sculptures and across to St. Mark's Square. The bells ringing adds to the experience. A beautiful vantage point for any visit to Venice.
forget the campanile de San Marco, take the vaparetto to the other side of the canale grande to the Chiesa San Giorgio and the included tower. Free entry for the church and some euros for the tower, no waiting time without the water bus :-) a nice and quite place, a beautiful look over venice up to the beach (lido) and also the harbour with the very big cruise ship like costa and aida but bigger the MSC, twice as high on the horizon
You'll have so much fun there, it'll feel like time itself is skipping... Yes, this is a Jojo reference
Wow. Tranquility amongst the chaos of touristy Venice. A must do
Is amazing place, very calm and the view from the tower is absolutely formidable! Highly recommended you have a 360 view of venece, lido and couple of other islands only 6 euros, worth it.
