St. Mark’s Square

St. Mark’s Square, one of the most famous squares in Italy and the world, was built in the 9th century and since then it has never ceased to charm its visitors. Apart from offering breathtaking views of St. Mark’s basin, the square is also dominated by St. Mark’s Basilica, which houses the patron saint’s relics. The cathedral is a must-see for first-time visitors to Venice. In fact, over the years it has been nicknamed the “Golden Church” due to its grandeur and beautiful mosaics.

Apart from the cathedral, the Doge’s Palace, once the residence of the supreme authority of the Republic of Venice, is worth visiting, as well as the Clock tower and the granite columns of St. Mark and Saint Theodore, which mark the entry to the city from the sea.
