The huge breadth of Venice's biggest square is united and made to appear to be relatively private by the exquisite consistency of its engineering on three sides. Be that as it may, more than its building effortlessness, St. Check's Square Piazza San Marco is adored as Venice's lounge, the place everyone accumulates, walks, drinks espresso, stops to talk, meets companions and visit guides, or just goes through while in transit to work or play.
Three sides are surrounded by arcades, underneath which are in vogue shops and significantly more chic bistros. The open end is bookmarked by the unpredictable, intriguing bends, whirls, mosaics, and silky stone filigree of St. Check's Basilica. Above it towers the blocking shaft of the campanile. For outlines of this bustling piazza, you can go to its best or to the highest point of the Torre dell'Orologio, where a couple of "Fields" strikes the hour.
