Campos San Stefano is Probably my favorite Campos in Venice. Tintoretto's (The Agony in the Garden, The Last Supper and The Washing of the Disciples' Feet) are all there. At the other end is San Vidal which is a church turned concert hall. It has an interesting display of stringed instruments; and the Academia Bridge is nearby.

This square is just minutes from the Accademia bridge and the walkway down to St MArks Square, and during Carnivale it was extremely busy. At the side of the Palazzo Foscarni is the most beautiful flower shop, then the square opens up and is quite wide. During Carnivale the square was full of stalls selling Carnivale accessories, ie thin capes,... More

This is a pretty little square located in a slightly more peaceful part of San Marco. Still plenty of tourists around, but not anywhere nearly as crowded as Piazza di San Marco. There's another great little church here and a nice statue in the middle of the square.

Very nice square close to Accademia bridge with beautiful churches, buildings and cafes. It is also very good place to sit on one of the benches to take a rest while enjoying the athmosphere.

Lovely piazza, away from the mania of piazza St Marco. Delicious pizza, pasta and prosecco, and great espresso. Lots of people watching. Our service was friendly and efficient. We wished we'd gone back later for dinner! Good value too!

Recently visited , looked nice so we sat down, we ordered some drinks then we were completely ignored for twenty minutes, got served eventually then waited another twenty mins, food was ok but nothing special, it is a good place to people watch but that's about it.

This is relatively quieter square. In the middle is statue of Nicolo Tommaseo. At one end is the beautiful githic church of St Stephen. Many mall cafes and restaurants are in the area.One can take Gondola rides also from the Gondola station near the church

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
