If you want a beautiful view of the whole of Venice, the lagoon and the islands, I suggest you take the elevator to the top of the bell tower (approx. 60 meter) of the San Giorgio Maggiore church. This allows you to see the San...More

You can get to the top of San Giorgio’s Bell Tower for 6€. Views from there are amazing! I would suggest everyone to skip the bell tower in Piazza San Marco and go straight to this one: there is no line, it is cheaper and...More

A classically significant church but very empty inside. The bell tower is what is really worth doing.

Ok, to make things clear, the place is a very good alternative for a fantastic view over the city. And it is much quieter as in the center. But the staff and organisation is just nonsense. The tower is opened till 19:00, the last ride...More

This is the dazzling white church that rises up out of the water across from the shores of St. Mark’s Square. You can take a vaporetto right over there and tour the church for free. It’s a large, cavernous building, and it’s generally quiet aside...More

This was worth the vaporetto trip. Free to enter with a fee for the tower. The church was calm and beautiful, with some interesting paintings and choir stalls. A lovely contrast to the bling of St Mark's. The views in all directions from the tower...More

We stayed in Venice for eight days and we visited every island. The San Giorgio Maggiore is one of the best islands. It is beautiful, relatively small and not so many people. There are some wonderful walking paths and watch towers on this island. If...More
