If you are a tourist in Venice you might as well visit here, because you will want to see Saint Mark's Basilica, the Doge's Palace and other nearby attractions. The piazza is hectic and crowded with people and pigeons. There were people having their photos taken with pigeons landing all over them. Yuck! Those are dirty birds!
We wandered around the entire area and found the shops and cafes to be extremely oriented toward the tourist. This meant there were prices to match. It's a very expensive area. We wanted to sit and have a refreshment in a cafe, but we chose not to do so when we saw the exorbitant prices.
You have to do it if you visit Venice, but there is so much more to the city if you get away from this area.
