The Other Way to San Marco Square

From Piazzale Roma, you can take the Vaparetto down the Grand Canal to San Marco Square or go counterclockwise around the island to San Marco Square.

It's less protected so the sea is a little rougher.

The underbelly of the island is also where the cruise ships dock.

Chiesa di San Giorgio Maggiore is situated on its own island across from San Marco Square.

Stainless steel sculpture of a hand formed from characters of 8 different languages hangs beneath the cupola in the foreground of the altar.
