Piazza San Marco

Large arrow left

Described by Napoleon as the "Drawing Room of Europe," Venice's principal public square is dominated by Saint Mark's Basilica and the Doge's Palace—as well as its famous pigeons. Wander the framing porticos, have coffee at Quadri or Florian's and just take it all in. Even on the most crowded days, there's a feeling of calm in the eddying whirls of people who gather in this impressive space.
