Bird’s eye view of Venice
“The best view of Venice!” That’s what a friend of mine said speaking about the photographic spot I am going to share with you this week.
It is difficult to take pictures of the most famous places in the world and to be original while doing it, but looking for different points of view may really help. The Campanile of San Giorgio Maggiore has been recently opened to the public. It is less crowded and cheaper than the more known Campanile of St Mark and offers some of the best aerial views of Venice.
Location: The Campanile of San Giorgio Maggiore, Venice.
What to shot: From the top of the building you will enjoy a breathtaking 360 degree panorama of Venice’s skyline and lagoon, with a gorgeous view of St Mark’s square, Punta della Dogana, and the Grand Canal.
Ideal time to shot: Check the opening hours and prices here and try to be there at sunset but anytime during the day will be worthy.
Gear: Anything from wide angles to teles, it really depends on what you have in mind for your pictures.
How to get there: Public transport water bus stations S. Giorgio (line 2).
