Very nice square close to Accademia bridge with beautiful churches, buildings and cafes. It is also very good place to sit on one of the benches to take a rest while enjoying the athmosphere.

Lovely piazza, away from the mania of piazza St Marco. Delicious pizza, pasta and prosecco, and great espresso. Lots of people watching. Our service was friendly and efficient. We wished we'd gone back later for dinner! Good value too!

Recently visited , looked nice so we sat down, we ordered some drinks then we were completely ignored for twenty minutes, got served eventually then waited another twenty mins, food was ok but nothing special, it is a good place to people watch but that's about it.

This is relatively quieter square. In the middle is statue of Nicolo Tommaseo. At one end is the beautiful githic church of St Stephen. Many mall cafes and restaurants are in the area.One can take Gondola rides also from the Gondola station near the church

Another stunning square, church and restaurants. It is supposedly one of the largest squares. I gotta admit, after awhile the look the same although they look different. Go to ten churches they start to look alike. Go to ten squares, they start to look alike. However, I like all of them better than the crowds at the basilica

Lots of restaurants and small cafés, including "Le Cafè" (a nice place for an afternoon drink but just OK for food IMO). A 15 minutes walk from Piazza San Marco and just a few steps from the Academia Bridge. End of the afternoon sun is awesome while having a drink.

After Piazzo San Marco, this square is the largest in this area and Venice’s most prestigious residential neighbourhood. At any time of day it has a mixture of busy hurrying Venetians, locals shopping, and wandering tourists. This square is the main thoroughfare between San Marco and Accademia Bridge. Seeing it today it's hard to believe this square once hosted bullfights,... More

My friends and I visited Venice in May, 2015. We arrived by private water taxi from the airport. It cost 100 euros (well worth it) but divided by 3 no problem. It took us about 1/2 hr to arrive at San Stefano, by public taxi over an hour. San Stefano is a wonderful square. With over 7 restaurants to choose... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
