Piazza San Marco

The "most beautiful salon in the world", built with masterful mosaic art.

Napoleon's opinion that this was the "most beautiful salon in the world" has lost none of its validity 200 years later. The 175 m long, slightly trapezoid St. Mark's Square is indeed unique, and the range of moods which one experiences in it over the course of the day or through the change of seasons, is enormous. It has been the scene of countless processions and very worldly festivities. Up to the present day, the Square is a vanity fair for locals and visitors alike. And, during the rare moments on foggy winter days or very late at night when, abandoned by the usual masses, it is tranquil, it serves as a magical setting for solitary dreamers. The buildings which line this square, whose form remains just as it was 800 years ago, are described elsewhere in this book. Here one can simply recommend that the visitor emulate past generations of travellers by strolling across the square with its arcades and luxury stores, and take in the unceasing wave of humanity and this unique backdrop.

  • très belle place, qui le reste une fois inondé.

  • The most famous square in Venice, always full of people, unless you visit late at night or early in the morning when the crowds have gone. Home to the Basilica di San Marco and also the Palazzo Ducale as well as the Astronomical clock.

    Plaza San Marco is one of the icones in Venice because of the beautiful buildings, of the warm terraces and bars around or because of the doves that start flying when you don't expect it offering an incredible show.

    Often crowded, and for many tourists this is the only impression the get from Venice! Apart from San Marco, Venice has to offer much more! However, it is still very imposing!
