About 170 canals run through Venice and a network of over 400 bridges connects its narrow streets called calle. However, there is only one true square in Venice, Piazza San Marco. Of all the places to see in Venice, St. Mark’s Square is one to leave you awe-struck. It is considered one of the most beautiful squares in Europe. According to legend, St. Mark’s Square was called “the drawing room of Europe” by Napoleon himself. St. Mark’s Square spreads around the most important structures of the city, St. Mark’s Basilica and Doge’s Palace. St. Mark’s Basilica dominates the square with its five distinctive domes inspired by Islamic architecture. Its foundation dates back to the 9th century but this bewildering structure has been adorned over the centuries. Here East meets West in wondrous spectacle of mosaics and works of art of different styles and artistic traditions. Located just off St. Mark’s Square in the adjoining piazzetta is Doge’s Palace. This exquisite example of Gothic architecture was built in the 14th century as the official residence of the Doge, the chief magistrate. The lavish interior was richly decorated by Venetian painters in the 16th and 17th centuries.
