One of the islands in Venice, San Giorgio Maggiore is famous with tourists as it is home to one of the 16th century Benedictine church. Built in a simple yet elegant fashion using brick and white marble, this church was designed by Palladio and is considered to be his best architectural marvel. It also has some paintings by Tintoretto. Close to the church is a small complex known as Cini Foundation Arts Centre which has a cloister designed by Palladio.

  Apart from the Renaissance masterpiece, you can also visit an open-air theatre called Teatro Verde at this island.
