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.
The food was wonderful - would go back just for their pizza!
Venice was "boring" it is a city built on water. For the mere fact we were there, it was an incredible experience, but if you want to see History & Architecture and the most fascinating place on earth, skip Venice and go to Rome!!
Our mistake may have been visiting Rome first. After that, all the other vacation spots just didn't compare.
We visited Rome, Pisa, Florence & Venice. Wouldn't have left Rome if I knew the other places were just "towns" with a few tourist traps.
like: extraordinary architecture, the church covered with gold, the sun over the lagoon, the gondolas, the pigeons, the high tide.... everything
this is one of the most wonderful places made by the man of the past
I recently visited the amazing city of Venice, and it was one of the best experiences of my life.
I know that everyone has seen pictures or movies depicting the beautiful city, but when you actually go there you see that those pictures could never actually do it justice.
It literaly takes your breath away.
