San Giorgio Maggiore Island as seen from a vaporetto from St. Mark's to the famed Lido.

The island has been home to a Benedictine monastery since 982. These buildings were built by Palladio and Longhena ( designer of Santa Maria della salute) in the 16th & 17th centuries. The facade is enclosed in scaffolding and white protective coverings while it is being restored.
