St Marks Square & Basilica : Venice

Possibly the busiest spot in Venice, St Marks Square is a vast open space that connects the Basilica, Campanile and Doge’s Palace. The square also sits on the waters edge so you have an incredible view across the water. If you fancied a Gondola ride, there are plenty of people offering rides next to the square and is one of the busiest spots for them. The Basilica is the main point of focus when visiting the square and has the most incredible exterior and interior. With thousands of sq meters of mosaics, the cathedral is a collection of domes, marble walls and greek architecture.  As a symbol of wealth and power, the building has a myriad of details and meanings throughout.
