The Tintoretto on the walls of Frari Church will move you to tears. If this experience makes you hunger for more of the Maestro’s work, a short ferry ride to the island San Giorgio Maggiore will more than fill you up. On the island is a monastery that houses paintings by Tintoretto, including The Last Supper. The island also has a Renaissance church and a clocktower, which offers terrific views of the city and lagoon.
