San Giorgio Maggiore is a 16th-century Benedictine church on the island of the same name in Venice, northern Italy, designed by Andrea Palladio, and built between 1566 and 1610. The church is a basilica in the classical Renaissance style and its brilliant white marble gleams above the blue water of the lagoon opposite the Piazzetta and forms the focal point of the view from every part of the Riva degli Schiavoni.

This is a hidden treasure. It's one stop over the water from San Marco on the water bus. Go in to the church and in the back left corner you by a ticket for €6 Euros and go the top of he tower in a glass elevator. Just amazing. The people there were kind, helpful and friendly. Once at the top the views over the Venice lagoon are stunning, breathtaking, just wow. You can spend as long as you want and enjoy to views. There was no queue and for the price it's a absolute must. There are other towers in Venice that you can queue to go up bit nothing like this.
Beautiful views, can easily take a stroll down to the pier and watch the water. It's very peaceful! It can get busy during peak hours so watch out for that, best time is late evening when the sun is beginning to set. The designer outlets are nearby too amount some bars and restaurants along the water. A must see stop after San Marco plazza!
