Piazza San Marco, Venice, Italy

Piazza San Marco is the quintessential spot in Venice. Our water taxi dropped us nearby and our hotel was a couple of canals away. Honestly, nothing is very far away in Venice.

Reminiscent of Place du tertre in Paris, there are sidewalk restaurants all along the sides. There are nondescript openings on the north side that open into tiny sidewalks that take you deep into the maze of Venice. On the southeast is the Campanile di San Marco. To the east is St. Mark's Basilica and Doge's Palace.

Then there are the pigeons!
