San Giorgio Maggiore, Venice

(2,800+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
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. Put San Giorgio Maggiore into our Venice vacation trip planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Venice.
