One of Venice's loveliest views is the one of San Giorgio Maggiore across the lagoon. If you get up early enough, see it at sunrise. The colors are usually soft and beautiful. making the buildings glow.
You can hop on vaporetto #2 and cross over to the island. On Sunday the church is closed to sightseers during mass, but don't worry it is open now. Inside is one of Tintoretto's versions of the "Last Supper" as well as his "Manna from Heaven." There is a nice cafe by the marina. I'm ready for a snack.
