Two of the cities formost monuments face on to this piazza. there are always people here and this place is buzzing! If the people dont knock you over, then beware as the pigeons might decide to poop on you. Origanally they use to hold the food market here but in 1536 the then reigning Doge decreed that the area should be kept clear. I wonder what he would think if he saw all the people milling around today
