We had fun on this little jaunt to this Basilica. There was great view from the top of the Church. Our trip about everything afforded great views, blue water and boats. Even with the Hubbub of boats it was a very peaceful place.
Tip: Research the way to get to any island via public transport or ask your hotel. We used the Rick Steve's book as our guide and it wasn't clear in the book on where to go for the boat.
In the heat and crowds of Venice and wasn't a pleasant experience.
