"St. Mark's Square" Piazza San Marco & Basilica San Marco Tip by Goner

  Full of Tourists
by Goner

Favorite thing: At the beginning of the 9th century, the Venetians built their Ducal castle and later their Basilica, the piazza was much smaller, squeezed between the facade of the church and a canal, At the end of the 12th century, the church of St. Mark’s was enlarged, the Ducal Palace was turned into a "palacio".
