Riva Degli Schiavoni is very close to Saint Marc Square. There are plenty of hotels and restaurants and bars. Great to have a drink and enjoy the sunset.

This stretch is crowded with tourists landing on the dock as well as departing to their tour buses. They do have nice shops and restaurants lined up on the side.

The Riva Degli Schiavoni is the main promenade leading up to the Doge's palace entrance & St. Marks square. You can view the bridge of sighs from here and take gondola rides also.
