DISTRICT OF SAN MARCO, VENICE’S HISTORIC CENTRE

Welcome to Piazza San Marco, the jewel of Venice

San Marco is one of the smallest sestieri (districts) in the city, a small, precious jewel, which encompasses the most beautiful buildings in Venice and, some might say, the world.
When you arrive in Piazza San Marco, you are already in the centre of the district.  At this point, all you need to do is to look around you and you will realise that you are in the most beautiful place in the world, surrounded by hundreds of years of history represented by superb monuments such as the Doge’s Palace, the Basilica of San Marco, the Procuratie Vecchie and the Bridge of Sighs.  The cafés are also a delight, with their tables outside and their small orchestras playing classical music which, on a foggy November day, cannot fail to lift your spirits.  You will also have met “el Paron de Casa”, the grand host, as the Campanile (bell tower) of Piazza San Marco is known.  You can now begin your visit to the house, so beautiful it takes your breath away.  All you need to do is to choose a monument, open your senses and imbibe the art, beauty and history at the same time.
