St.Mark's Square | About

St. Mark Square, the heart of the floating city, in Italian colloquial language is also known as the Piazza San Marco. It is the biggest and most impressive square in the city and acts as a tourist magnet for Venice.

As coined by Napoleon, it is "the drawing room of Europe" and gets its name inspiration from the stellar Basilica San Marco or St Mark’s Basilica, situated on the east end of the square. The Basilica di San Marco and its flurry of magnificent domes and arches are located on the square's fourth side, and other significant arcades and state-of-the-art buildings encircle the square's other three sides.

Why Visit St Mark's Square?

St Mark's Square

Find yourself amidst stunning buildings: St. Mark's Square is surrounded by magnificent architecture on all sides. The Doge’s Palace, the Bell Tower, and the Basilica San Marco are a few of the area's prominent attractions.

Do some café hopping: Caffe Florian and Caffe Quadri, the two famous cafés on the square, offer plenty of old-world charm and are the best places to soak up the ambiance of Venice.

Soak in some breathtaking views from the Campanile di San Marco: The brick Campanile di San Marco is the tallest structure in Venice, at 98.6 metres high.

Spot Horses & Lions: Visitors are likely to notice the four splendid bronze horses, known as the Cavalli di San Marco in Italian on the exterior of Saint Mark's Basilica.
