Rialto and its bridge are one of the icons of Venice, a daily attraction with its city market becoming a local hang out at night where younger crowds meet at the Erbaria clubs overlooking the Grand Canal. The Mercerie are the "calli" that lead to St. Mark's Square, important trade arteries during the city's flourishing past and now dedicated to shopping rivaling with the store fronts in Via XXII marzo.
St. Mark's Square is the heart of Venice. Dominated by the impressive bell tower, the square is surrounded by the Procuratie porticos and animated by infamous and historic cafes like the Caffè Florian and Caffè Quadri. At one end, the Correr Museum with its collections dedicated to the history of the Republic faces the extraordinary facade of St. Mark's Basilica.
The Byzantine style of the basilica conceals the splendid golden mosaics and remains of St. Mark the Evangelist, the city's patron saint; the large portals, the sumptuous domes and four bronze horses from Constantinople, make this building spectacular and captivating. The Doge's Palace is next to the basilica. Seat of the Venetian Republic government, this building is a Venetian Gothic masterpiece. Don't miss the Sala del Gran Consiglio and the prisons that lead to the famous Bridge of Sighs.
If you look over St. Mark's basin, in addition to the myriad of gondolas and ferries, you'll see St. George's island with its beautiful bell tower, giving you a unique view of Venice and the lagoon; enchanting and exciting, St. George's basilica is on ofPalladio's best works.
