VENICE: DEPARTURE LOUNGE
St. Mark's Square
This beautiful public space is often called 'the drawing room of Europe' because the sound of conversation dominates, not traffic. Most of the main tourist attractions in Venice are in and around St. Marks Square. It is bordered by the most impressive of buildings, from the gilded and gleaming Basilica San Marco to the Napoleonic austerity of the Museo Correr, all are filled with treasures and wonders waiting to be explored. Cap it off with a visit to the most beautiful cathedral interior in the world and it's no wonder the average day-tripper rarely needs to venture beyond its confines.
