This was one of my absolute have-to-dos of our trip. A short vaporetto ride to this little island. Absolutely worth the few euros to go up the bell tower for a gorgeous vista of Venice.

When I visited St. Mark's, one of the views that I wanted to have was to look across the Grand Canal to see "San Giorgio Maggiore". As a fan of the great impressionist painter "Monet", I wanted to see the "San Giorgio Maggiore" Church which...More

Only the No 2 boat goes here these days but it's a good frequent service and only one stop from S Marco (well, S Zacacaria actually). And well worth the hop across the water. I don't know why more people don't come here - but,...More

A short ride by Vaporetto from St.Marks. An impressive church with lovely surroundings. For a small fee you can ride in a lift to the top of the tower and the view of Venice is breathtaking.

Mass with Gregorian chants - so magnificent. The church is so lovely situated on an island opposite St Marks square. It is well worth the vaporetto trip over there. Stunning.

You can take a vaporetto from St Mark's over to San Giorgio. The church is beautiful and has some exhibits of the Biennale. We took the elevator up to the top of the tower and the view of Venice from the top was beautiful.

We always buy a vaporetto ticket for the week we are staying in Venice so I am not sure about the ruling on two separate trips. I my view it is probably just as cheap to buy a day ticket and you would be able to hop on and... More
