Piazza San Marco - Venice Italy

St Marks Square - Venice Italy
Or in Italian, Piazza San Marco, Venice Italy
The piazza is lined with shops, cafes, and restaraunts. On the east end is the Basilica of St Mark. Beautiful architecture and art can be seen from every angle. On this evening the orchestras were playing to happy crowds of on lookers enjoying cool Italian Prosecco and the ambiance of the square. Notice at one end a huge adverstisement for Chandon Champagne featuring Scarlett Johannson.
Magical!

 When the water levels rise the piazza can become flooded. Temporary elevated sidewalks come out so people can walk without getting wet. Most of the time they become extra seating for crowds in the square.
