San Marco District

Venice Italy Tourist Information and City Guide

The San Marco District of Venice Italy is one of Venice's six Sestiere (districts) and is the tourism epicenter of the city.

It is very easy to find thanks to the tall Bell Tower (Campanile) that is located in St. Mark's Square (Piazza San Marco).

Although hotel accommodation is plentiful in this popular area of Venice, it must be booked well in advance.
