On your second day here, pause for some serene contemplation at San Giorgio Maggiore, take in the spiritual surroundings of Scuola Grande di San Rocco, then don't miss a visit to Peggy Guggenheim Collection, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, and finally stop by Cannaregio.
