It is said that Napoleon called San Marco "the drawing room of Europe." And it is a breathtakingly beautiful place. But the square has long been a lure for massive numbers of pigeons, drawn by the massive numbers of tourists who readily feed them...more

I was fortunate enough to visit as a kid. And brought my family here recently. The gasps and faces my kids made when we rounded a corner and stepped into the square were almost tear jerking. It more than holds its own. Just beautiful.
Ok so it is expensive, it is the heart of Venice, it is a given, but you HAVE to spend one evening of your stay here at least, sitting watching the musicians with a good bottle of wine or a cocktail, enjoying the delicious little...More
The first day I visited, the square, it was flooded. Interestingly, by the afternoon the water had subsided and the square was lively with tourists. Its a typical square, similar to many squares in european towns. On one side is the clocktower and the Basilica....More
The square is a must go if you are in Venice. Cafes in the square are very expensive which is expected. My one tip would be to visit the square at night... I stumbled across it by accident and it is beautiful in the moonlight...More

I visited St Marks Basilica on Valentines Day in 2019.
St Marks Square (including St Marks Basilica) is an absolute must do for everyone!!
I would also highly recommend those romantics considering going on Valentines Day or to celebrate a special occasion 🥰
St Marks Square is just as I’ve pictured it over the years. It was extra special because we were there while the thousands of little white lights still hung down like icicles all around the square in front of the shoppes as decorated for the...More
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and
Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.

Hi we stayed only 5 mins walk from St Marks square and we had a fantastic time the only thing we didn't do was a gondola ride as we had more fun trying all the back streets. We had amazing food and only spent about £450 in total including going up the tower, the palace and church.
