St Mark's Square
The St. Mark's Square (Piazza San Marco), which was called "the drawing room of the world" by Musset, has been the centre of the religious and social life in the Venetian republic for almost one millennium.

Like so many European squares, Campo Santa Margherita is named after the church that fronts it on one side, which was closed in 1810. Since then, the church has been used as a cinema and, most recently, an auditorium for the local university.
Visit the area around the Rialto Bridge – until the 19th Century the only bridge across the Grand Canal. Michelangelo’s was among the designs rejected to replace the original wooden bridge.
