Napoleon is very vividly described the square of St. Mark as a "salon of Europe". Sitting in one of the 18th-century cafés and observe one of the most unusual churches in Europe, the golden Byzantine Basilica of St. Mark's for us is wonderfull and we are full of joy and respect. Venice is a city of romance and love, waterways, picturesque bridges, beautiful palaces, churches, antique cafe bars and restaurants with delicious food. It's hard not to like this unusual city. The heart of the whole town is St. Mark's Square. It was the center of Venetian life once, as it is today. The Square is actually made up of three parts, Piazza (the main part of the square), Piazzetta (located on the south side of the Doge's Palace by the sea) and Piazzetta dei Leonchini (little square with lions). The square is dominated by the Basilica of St. Mark, the beautiful Venetian cathedral, its richly decorated interior is something not to be missed. Along the Basilica on the Square there is a Torre dell'orologio (Clock Tower), the Marciana Library (the National Library of St. Mark's), the Correr Museum ( Antonello da Messina, Giovanni Bellini, Alvise Vivarini, Lorenzo Lotto and Vittore Carpaccio) , the Archaeological Museum, the tresor of St. Mark's Basilica. One place that you should not miss on St Mark's Square is Caffe Florian. Caffe Florian is the oldest café in Venice opened in 1720, known as a place that combines culture, art, politics and entertainment in one place. The atmosphere is always enchanting. Here is held the famous Carnival of Venice and then it is extremely happy and magical atmosphere.
