It's All Here

San Marco Square, also known as St. Mark's Square, Piazza San Marco, or simply "the Piazza", was constructed in the 9th century as a small square dotted with trees. Today, the piazza has grown into a massive public square, attracting both locals and tourists alike. Facing much of the eastern portion of the piazza is Saint Mark's Basilica, with its massive facade of grand arches and marble decals. Other highlights around the square include the Clock Tower, the Procuratie Vecchie, Ala Napoleonica, Museo Correr, The Doge's Palace, and Procuratie Nuove. Piazza San Marco is a prominent meeting point in Venice, directing visitors to popular and historical attractions, from cafes to churches; in a way, it's the centerpiece of Venice—and what a centerpiece it is.
