Piazza San Marco

Venice, Italy

In Venice, plan to get lost. That's part of the fun in this city of canals, gondolas and undulating alleyways. But eventually, you'll find your way to Piazza San Marco, the city's main square. Here, the elaborate, Byzantine Basilica San Marco, topped with Moorish domes, lords over the people-packed expanse. Beside it, the opulent Doges Palace, a historic symbol of Venetian wealth and power, also draws crowds. Enjoy the scenery from one of the square's tiny cafes.
