But, along with the monument there are numerous cafes at which to eat, hotels and B & B's. There is also an art institute which the buildings façade makes an ideal place to sit, eat, drink, relax and watch the people. Even though there is a lot going on in the Campo, it is large enough that it doesn't seem... More

We had a lovely dinner in one of the restaurants here, with wine before at another place. If you are looking for a place near the Accademia look no further. This is a wonderful place to sit in the afternoon sun, have a coffee or wine, and enjoy watching all the people.

Very lovely historic building and great ambience. Couple of fine restaurants with out door seating. Seems to capture old Venice without mobs of tourists with selfie sticks. No panhandlers here. Used to have bull fights here. Good place to relax and have a smoke

Campos San Stefano is Probably my favorite Campos in Venice. Tintoretto's (The Agony in the Garden, The Last Supper and The Washing of the Disciples' Feet) are all there. At the other end is San Vidal which is a church turned concert hall. It has an interesting display of stringed instruments; and the Academia Bridge is nearby.

This square is just minutes from the Accademia bridge and the walkway down to St MArks Square, and during Carnivale it was extremely busy. At the side of the Palazzo Foscarni is the most beautiful flower shop, then the square opens up and is quite wide. During Carnivale the square was full of stalls selling Carnivale accessories, ie thin capes,... More

This is a pretty little square located in a slightly more peaceful part of San Marco. Still plenty of tourists around, but not anywhere nearly as crowded as Piazza di San Marco. There's another great little church here and a nice statue in the middle of the square.

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.
