A stunning vision from any angle, St. Mark's Square is Venice's No. 1 tourist attraction. Seen through the ancient arches of the arcade that borders it, the piazza is magically framed, like a master painting come to life. Alight at night, beneath a mosaic of glittering stars, St. Mark’s most renowned sights, such as the needle-like campanile (or bell tower), are even more dramatic. After a passeggiata around the square, linger in an alfresco cafe or take a gondola ride.
