For our last day in Venice, we were determined to see Saint-Marco square before the tourists flock there! We got up extra early that morning and had a look at the square before it was packed with people and it was lovely!
St. Mark’s Square dates from the 11th century but apparently, there was an older church on this site way before that. Tour the Doge’s Palace is located on the square and its facade features beautiful arches and pink and white marble.
We took some pictures, wandered around, and quickly went to see the gondolas on the lagoon one more time (definitively my favourite sight in Venice) 🙂
We continued to stroll leisurely the labyrinth made of all the little alleyways and walk along the canal. I think the best way to discover Venice is just to wander around!
It was an early night as we were supposed to take the train to Firenze the next morning.
