Set off from Portofelice and get off right in St. Mark’s square in Venice!
From Portofelice to the “parlour of Europe” in less than an hour.
Organize a trip to one of the most important squares in the world! St. Mark’s Square with its architectural beauty and evocative location is ready to offer you an unforgettable experience. The columns of St. Mark and St. Theodore, with the Doge’s Palace and the Libreria Marciana, provide a monumental access to the square if you come from the sea. Between Piazzetta dei Leoni and the Procuratie you will find the notorious clock tower that marks the beginning of the Merceria, a “calle” (narrow street) along which you will find the city’s main shops and which acts as the over-land entrance to the square through a portico. St. Mark’s Basilica encompasses the most important church in the city and, along with the Bell Tower and the square itself, represents the main monument of Venice and one of the symbols of Italy. If you want to treat yourself to a unique coffee, under the open gallery of shops and restaurants, you will find the historical Caffé Quadri and Florian. Then, if you want to fill up on history and culture, you can visit the Doge’s Palace, a Gothic art masterpiece, and the Correr Museum, which offers different and fascinating itineraries for discovering the art and history of Venice, from the neoclassical halls by Canova to the historical collections on the origins of the Serenissima and great examples of Venetian painting from the early 1500s.
