Welcome to San Marco
So many world-class attractions are packed into San Marco, some visitors never leave – and others are loath to visit, fearing crowds. But why deny yourself the pleasures of two of the most famous buildings in the world, Basilica di San Marco and Palazzo Ducale, not to mention the wonderful Museo Correr and Venice's famous jewel-box opera house La Fenice? Judge for yourself whether they earn their reputations – but don’t stop there. The backstreets are packed with galleries, boutiques and enoteche (wine bars).
