The most popular place to visit in Venice is the Piazza San Marco (Saint Mark's Square, also called the Piazetta) a large open square. St. Mark's is the main meeting place in Venice and  is usually crowded by tourists and the pigeons. The Piazza San Marco is one of  the lowest areas in Venice and may flood during high tide which occurs in winter and early spring. If you dock at St. Mark's you will see two columns, one is topped by a Lion of St. Mark and the other is crowned with Saint Theodore, the patron saint of Venice. On the Piazza San Marco you will find several museums, St. Mark's
 Cathedral, the Campanile and the Doge's Palace. The Piazza San Marco is
a public square and open year round.

The original structure of  Campanile from the early 17th century collapsed during repair work in 1902 and the present structure was rebuilt in 1912. Visitors can climb to the top for a nice view of the Piazza, St. Mark's and the Doge's Palace. The Campanile is open year round  and is the tallest structure in Venice.
