One of the most iconic and popular locations in Venice, Italy is Saint Mark's Square or Piazza San Marco. The square was the center of religion, economics and government of the city of Venice. The square is named for the beautiful 9th century Basilica of San Marco, the Roman Catholic cathedral which dominates the square. Surrounding the square are the offices of the political leaders of the city. Below is the market square where goods would have been traded on a regular basis. An interesting fact that we learned was that the square floods on a regular basis as the tides rise each day.
