Piazza San Marco
The Piazza San Marco is one of the most beautiful squares in the world, overlooking the water and surrounded by the marble buildings of the Basilica of San Marco, the Doges Palace, the Procuratie, the bell tower, and the Marciana Library. The most important religious and civil ceremonies have always been held in this square and it is now considered the main symbol and tourist attraction of Venice.
You're jaw will drop the first time you see this square. It is so big, so beautiful, and you feel like there isn't a prettier place on earth. It is so crowed during the day that you MUST see it at night. There are occastas playing which sounds so beautiful. Sit down on one of the cafe and order a drink or desert. It is amazing expensive, but totaly worth it. Make sure you go on a gondala ride when you are in Venice. You can get rides right here in the square.
We got up real early one day and took a walk down to the piazza. The sun was about to rise and and square was completely empty. It was interesting to experience it in this light, since during the day thousands of people visit. We took some awesome pics of the sun rising and in the piazza.
It's bigger than you think. After winding through the narrow streets/alleys to get there, the path opens up to this expansive square. There's a lot to take it.
Just a note: as you're navigating to the square - don't worry so much about the map just follow the yellow signs on most corners reading "Per San Marco" - we found it was much less stressful than keeping a finger on the map the entire time!
Iliked it met, nice people there. I want to go back. Like the title it's awesome i got to ride a gondola and I happened to be there on a day when there was a carnival and I got a mask. Yes it was great but to anyone going bring a wallet full of money! Please go it's great and if you don't go your'e only cheating yourself. Oh and a tip to all people who are deciding between 2 places go to Venice because a trip to Venice might even give you the inspiration to write a book like it did to me! Have fun in Venice but learn Italian first!
More spectacular than any photo could portray. A real slice of Venice. Be sure to spend time winding through the little passageways to get a real feel of Venetian life. A multitude of shops exists with locally made glass objects almost too beautiful to gaze upon. We had the best lunch of our lives here.
Absolutely loved Venice! If you like ancient architecture and art, you will love this city! When I walked into San Marco Square it literally took my breath away! What a beautiful place!
Wonderful for romantics and lovers, especially in the evening. As the sun sets it casts a beautiful glow over the entire city. I would recommend a visit to Venice to anyone!
