Venice: The Piazzetta, looking towards San Giorgio Maggiore


RCIN 907446

Canaletto has drawn the view from a point in the middle of the Piazzetta. The southernmost three arcades of the Palazzo Ducale are included to the left, and the column with the Lion of St Mark, rather too massive, to the right. In the distance, across the Bacino, is the church of San Giorgio Maggiore, stretched so that its portico is seen to the right of the column.

    The income from your ticket contributes directly to The Royal Collection Trust, a registered charity. The aims of The Royal Collection Trust are the care and conservation of the Royal Collection, and the promotion of access and enjoyment through exhibitions, publications, loans and educational activities.
