Piazza San Marco is the city’s main public square and contains its most famous buildings such as St Mark’s Basilica and the Doge's Palace. Napoleon called it "the world’s most beautiful drawing room". The most famous buildings in the piazza is: St Mark’s Basilica. The Basilica's interior is predominantly gold-colored, hence its nickname "Chiesa d’Oro" (Golden Church). The main dome of the religious building is called Ascension Dome and is covered in early thirteenth-century mosaics, which depict scenes from the New Testament. The mosaics found in the church's atrium are made of small glass tiles with gold leaf on them. These represent scenes from the Old Testament.

Stop At: Ponte di Rialto

The Rialto bridge was considered the eighth wonder of the world in the year 1594, just a few years after it was erected, between 1588 and 1591. It really cost a lot of money: more than 250,000 ducats. It was for many centuries the only bridge built across the Grand Canal or Canalazzo, as we call it here. It is nowadays one of the most iconic buildings in Venice, although now the shops located on it do not sell exclusively gold and jewels.

Stop At: Ponte dei Sospiri

With over 400 bridges crossing the canals of Venice, you'd have to be a local to visit them all. But if you're looking for the best ones to see on this next trip, then the Bridge of Sighs surely makes the list. Called the Ponte dei Sospiri by locals, this iconic landmark was built in the year 1600 and connects the Doge's Palace to the historic prison across the canal. Even though it has a dark history used to transport prisoners, today it's easily considered one of the most romantic places in Venice, which is no small feat in a city as idyllic as La Serenissima. It's tradition to kiss your loved one on a gondola ride while passing under the Bridge of Sighs; just don't expect it to be an intimate moment since most tourists have the same idea.
