The place is well worth a visit. The grounds are lovely, and the Campanile is not to be missed. You get a spectacular view of the most beautiful city in the world on a clear day without the crowds of San Marco. Seeing the Tintoretto in situ is thrilling. It is a major art piece, and can be lit.

Make sure you visit and go up the tower! Take a stroll around the island. Hardly anyone seemed to be around so great way to get away from all of the traditional touristy spots. Best view of Venice.

What a sight -and a site-! We saw this church from a distance by water and walking. It is a splendid view. We did not go inside. I would have loved to go back and see it with the light of sunset falling over the water and touching the stones.

Foggy day but still a good idea to cross over to Guidecca and walk down to S. Georgio. Fantastic views from the campanile especially of the double cloister

Opposite Piazza San marco, you can take a five minute vaporetto triop to San Guiorgio, pay a few Euros to go up the bell tower and have the best view acvailable of the important bits of Venice.
