Church of Saint George the Greater

Interesting
Begun by Palladio in 1566, this church enjoys a beautiful luminosity that highlights the vault of the nave and the transept with a dome and apses. The chancel features two major works by Tintoretto: The Last Supper and Harvesting manna in the desert. The bell tower commands the most beautiful view you will find of Venice and its lagoon!
