Church of Saint George the Greater

Recommended
San Giorgio Maggiore church is one of the highlights of Venice. 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. However, it's the view from its bell tower that makes the church so famous: this breathtaking panorama is one of the most beautiful views of Venice and its lagoon.
