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.
