  Piazza San Marco
by BorneoGrrl

Piazza San Marco or St Mark's Square is the most popular attraction with tourists in Venice. It is constantly full of visitors with different reasons to visit, from appreciating the history to filming movies. Apart from two James Bond flicks (I recalled), there was also a Bollywood singing & dancing scene that had the stunning surroundings as a backdrop

It's impossible to get a picture without a multitude of tourists posed beside you so you'll have to bear it. I suppose the only time you can see an empty square is when it's either very early in the morning or late at night

Should you get tired of snaking your way through crowds people, you can sit and enjoy a drink at one of the open air (albeit expensive) cafes in the main square

Address: St Mark's Square, Venice
