    Features the two columns, among the symbols of Venice, impossible not to the edge of Piazza San Marco to the sea. Beautiful panorama towards the square towards the sea. Originals also artistically, Oriental, being the result of the sack of Constantinople.

    The Columns, or Colonne di San Marco e San Teodoro, have some history behind them. St Mark and St Theodore are traditionally the 'protectors' of the city. The columns are located at the one end of St ...  more »

  • Giving the broad expanse of Piazza San Marco its vertical dimension is the campanile, the tall brick bell tower for the basilica
  • Beautiful edge of the square overlooking the sea. Many gondolas are stored here. Great pictures can be taken of surrounding islands and sunset is amazing!
  • I would recommend everyone to not miss the view from the top of the San Marco campanella
  • Beautiful and iconic column. Makes a beautiful picture if the light is right.
  • I can't believe St. Theodore depicted on of the columns wasn't good enough to be the patron of Venice :) Must see in Venice. The view is spectacular.

Where to stay in Venice

Save money and avoid tourist crowds by booking your accommodation outside the historical center of Venice. Central Venice is full of picturesque canals and narrow lanes, but it is also extremely noisy and hectic throughout the day and late into the night. You can explore the ancient city's charms at your own pace by staying at a comfortable B&B or small hotel located in the city's residential suburbs. To stay close to the finest beaches and restaurants, check into a hotel on the island of Lido, the city's famous seaside resort.
