What to Expect
Looking at the lagoon by St. Mark’s Square, you'll see the white shape of a classical temple appearing amidst the waters. It is San Giorgio Maggiore Church, one of the Palladian buildings in San Giorgio Island, Venice.
Also known in the ancient times as  “Cypresses Island”, it was previously a settlement of a Benedictine community. Away from the crowded St. Mark’s Square, the island offers a breathtaking sight from the top of the bell tower.
Then you'll cruise to a little jewel of the lagoon, San Lazzaro degli Armeni. This island, dedicated to San Lazzaro, Patron Saint of the Leprouses, was first a leper hospital. After a few centuries of decay at the beginning of the 18th century, a community of Armenian monks, settled here. They turned the old buildings of the island's monastery into a cultural center, with two libraries. The larger of the two, with frescoes by the Venetian painter Tiepolo, is home to some 150,000 volumes. The libraries are open only to scholars by appointment.
