    Mark’s Square

    People often place St. Marks Square at the top of their list of things to do when visiting Venice. St. Mark’s Square is where you should go to feel the essence and vibrancy of Venice. The beating heartbeat of Rome is the Colosseum. However, Venice’s most famous piazza, St. Mark’s Square (also known as Piazza San Marco), is the beating heart. This impressive square is flanked by arches, ornate buildings and entrances which host high-end cafes and shops. It is one of Europe’s most famous squares, with the Campanile (clock tower), on one side and the Torre dell Orologio on the other. Other Venetian landmarks like St. Mark’s Basilica and Doges Palace are also on the other.

No cancellation fees and refunds up to 24 hours before the tour begins. You will spend much of your time in this area, as some of Venice’s most significant buildings are situated around St. Mark’s Square.

    Doge’s Palace

    Doges Palace, located in Venice’s main area of Venice, is one of the most popular places to visit. The Palazzo Ducale, or the Doge’s Palace, is the most significant building in Venetian History. For centuries, the Doge was Venice’s head of religion and state. He was Venice’s Pope Regent, President, Prime Minister, and Regent all at once.

    The Doge’s Palace can be found in the corner, with statues of St Mark (the Patron Saint of Venice) and the winged lion towards the water. Looking at the Venetian Gothic architecture within and outside of Doge’s palace is impressive. I recommend spending at least 90 minutes.

    The Skip-the-Line Tickets to Doge’s Palace or St Marks Square Tour include a local-led guided tour and skip-the-line tickets. They have special exhibits throughout the year, which are included in your ticket. The ticket also allows you entry to Museo Correr, Museo Archeologico Nazionale, and Biblioteca Nazionale.

    The square’s main focal point is held by St Mark’s Basilica (Basilica di San Marco). This stunning facade is covered with elegant equestrian statues and grand domes in gold-leaf mosaics.

You can also find the Treasury, which houses the church’s relics, and the Pala D’oro (Byzantine golden cloth).

    You can climb the steps to St Mark’s Museum for a small museum about Venice’s history and a stunning view of St Mark’s Square. Basilica of Saint Mark (San Marco) is a fine example of Byzantine architecture, modeled after the Holy Apostles church.

    Mark’s Campanile

    The tower of St. Mark’s Campanile (12th century), also known as San Marco Campanile, stands 323 feet tall and offers a magnificent view of the square from the loggia Belfry. Campanile San Marco was once a lighthouse that allowed shipping, and it was also the prototype for Campaniles’ lagoon area Campaniles.

    One of the original five bells is still in the church, as the tower’s collapse destroyed all the others in 1902. All the bells are still rung, although they have been replaced. On top of the tower, a golden statue representing Gabriel the Archangel holds court. For a spectacular view of Venice, climb up to the top.

    A walking tour is highly recommended. This private tour of St. Mark’s Square shows the square’s main attractions, the magnificent St. Mark’s Basilica and the Clock Tower (Torre dell Orologio).

It will likely be the most expensive hot chocolate or coffee you have ever had. However, it is highly recommended. Quadra Café often has a classical quartet playing in its front.
