How to best enjoy Piazza San Marco

We are not merely suggesting that you should visit St Mark’s Square, obviously. Even if you have been to Venice before, the Piazza is so fabulous that visiting every time you are in town is essential. However, during the day Venice can feel invaded by day-trippers, who arrive by train or cruise ships to spend a few hours in the Piazza, go for a gondola ride and then leave the city. So, if you are in town to spend at least one night, which we highly recommend, take the opportunity to visit other Venetian attractions in peak hours and leave the Piazza for after 6pm. It will be much easier to enjoy it and chances are you will leave Venice mesmerized by its beauty!
