Other Islands, Venice
Yes there are canals here to. This is a MUCH quieter place than Venice. It might be too quiet or isolated for some.
The panorama from this island was nice and I enjoyed the peacefulness. It is just the opposite of the crowds and mayhem at Piazza San Marco during the day! Staying on this island was a nice change.
SAN GIORGIO MAGGIORE island. You can see it from Campanile (tower) or take a vaporetto no.82 & explore it a little better.
