Venice lies on an archipelago of 118 little islets, a former hostile and marshy area. Beside those forming Venice, some forty more islands are scattered within its lagoon, the largest in Europe. The island of San Giorgio Maggiore lies right in front of St Mark's waterfront and hosts a famous Church, a milestone of the Renaissance architecture, by Andrea Palladio.
