Saint Mark’s Square in Venice

One of the main tourist attractions in Venice in Italy is the Saint Mark’s Square. The fact that the Saint Mark’s Square is the only real square in Venice, the floating City, makes it even more special. Sure, there are other smaller places that have free space, but the biggest one is definitely Saint Mark’s Square, or Piazza San Marco in Italian.

Gondolas and waterborne stop at Saint Mark’s Square in Venice and sometimes even big Cruise Ships, how surreal it sounds and indeed looks! Along the Square are one of the most beautiful buildings in Venice, such as the Doge’s Palace. The Venetian Republic was once ruled from this enchanting example of floral Gothic style Building, making it the highest expression of Venetian art. Right next to it, and close to my Lunch spot Rossopomodoro in Venice, there is the Saint Mark’s Basilica. It’s a great example of Byzantine Venetian architecture. It was the Doge’s Chapel and also the mausoleum for Saint Mark, the patron saint, whose life is narrated in the golden mosaics on the walls. Not to miss is the Clocktower that was built in 1810 by architect Giuseppe Soli. he clocktower is at the start of the Merceria, the road that leads from Saint Mark’s Square to the Campo di San Bartolomeo. At any time you can find some thousands of pigeons in the square. Either walking around or flying closely over peoples heads. There are also many Souvenir Shops selling the usual stuff, from ‘Venetian Masks‘ to Postcards and Selfie Sticks. Saint Mark’s Square in Venice is also very expensive if you visit a Restaurant or Café there, make sure to pay more than 15 € for a simple Espresso there. If you have scored a nice Place outside at least your View will be worth it. A visit to Venice will be absolutely worth it.

      Thanks Livia, Venice is absolutely beautiful, no matter what season it is! And indeed, I guess there isn’t something such as low season 😉
