Napoleon described Piazza San Marco as " the most beautiful drawing room in Europe". It has always been, and remains the most attractive drawing room and the core of the city. The best approach to the piazza is to take the vaporetto to Vallaresso and enter the square from the bocca de piazza.

If you want to avoid the crowded, it's better to visit the Piazza in the evening. You'll be very content with the beautiful sunset glittering on the roof of Basilica di San Marco and the music from the cafes. There's a good market behind the Piazza.
