San Marco is a district with allure. Here you will find the great sights, beautiful palazzos and the most exclusive shops.
If you come for the architectural and cultural treasures, San Marco is a district for you. Besides being the cultural centre, this used to be a popular residential area, with beautiful palazzi and mansions. Now not many Venetians live here, it is mostly tourists who stay here. You'll find sights like Piazza San Marco and the Palazzo Ducale. Shopping is also good: in the little streets between Rialto Bridge and Piazza San Marco, or - for top Italian brands - between Piazza San Marco and Campo Santo Stefano. A very charming part of the district is between Campo Santo Stefano, Campo Sant'Angelo and La Fenice opera house.
