Postcards from Venice: St. Mark’s Square from the top of San Giorgio Maggiore’s bell tower.

What to shot: The view from the top of the building is surely one of the best views over Venice. An amazing advantage point to photograph Venice’s skyline and lagoon, St Mark’s square, Punta della Dogana, and the Grand Canal.

Ideal time to shot: Sunset. Opening hours and prices here.

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).

Coordinates: 45°25′45″N 12°20′35″E
