"San Marco Square" Italy Things to Do Tip by reon80

Italy Things to Do: 1,470 reviews and 2,257 photos

This is the big square surrounded by the Palazzo Duchale, the Basilica de San Marco, and the campanile. All of these sites are fantastic, but it's also fun to sit at one of the highly-overpriced cafes around the square and people-watch! And the pigeons, while driving you nuts most of the time, can be really fun to feed in the middle of the square! I got a great picture, which I will post later, of my mom feeding the pigeons! So I recommend hanging out here one day after seeing the surrounding sites--you can make a whole day of it!
