Central location since the times of the Serenissima, the Sestiere of San Marco is still the center of religious, social and economic interest.

Piazza San Marco, one of the most beautifuls squares in the world, where the Byzantine mosaics are reflected in puddles of water, is breathtaking when viewed from the correct angle.

Why San Marco is Venice’s living room once a place of walking and today the favorite destination for tourists who flock every corner to capture some glimpse of the Basilica, the Doge’s Palace and the Bell Tower.

Leaving the square, the area extends up to the Rialto Bridge, through the Mercerie, famous for luxury shopping and then goes on to Campo Santo Stefano and Palazzo Grassi. This are the  places where there are a lot of antique shops and craft activities.

Going down instead by waterbus in the Calle Vallaresso you can admire the island of San Giorgio, the Church of the Salute and the island of Giudecca.

What better time to enjoy the typical Bellini, a cocktail of prosecco and peach juice, to watch the landscape from the terrace of  the Hotel Monaco & Grand Canal? Hospitality, tradition and elegance are the strengths that characterize this historical structure. In every season a look to the majestic Salute Church is definitely one of the breathtaking  shows that Venice offers …
