  • Visit the island of Giudecca with the Church of the Redeemer
  • Explore the neighbouring island of San Giorgio Maggiore and the church of the same name

Description

Start your tour at the church Il Rendentore, which is located on the island of Giudecca. The small island belongs to Venice but forms a successful contrast to the hustle and bustle of Venice. You can easily reach the quiet and charming island via a vaporetto, a kind of water bus. Once there, you can admire the Church of the Redeemer by the famous master builder Andrea Palladio. The church is based on the shape of an old temple and was commissioned in thanksgiving for the end of the plague. Even today, the Redentore Festival is still held there every July to celebrate the disappearance of the plague

We continue to the neighbouring island of San Giorgio Maggiore. At the end of the 10th century Benedictine monks founded a monastery there and in the 16th century Andrea Palladio drew up the plans for the adjacent church of San Giorgio Maggiore. Be enchanted by the gleaming façade of the Basilica and admire the classical architecture of the famous builder, which became a model for the architecture of the following centuries

Finally take the water bus and reach the other bank again. Explore St. Mark's Square with the most famous sights of the city: St. Mark's Cathedral, the Doge's Palace and the Bell Tower. Let your experienced city guide take you to the most beautiful points of the city and explore Venice in a very individual way
