Piazza San Marco (St Mark’s Square), 12th-19th century, civic and religious square, architecture: Byzantine to Renaissance. Nearly two football fields long, the plaza is surrounded by the offices of the republic – the Procuratie Vecchie or “old offices” (16th century Renaissance) and the Procuratie Nuove or “new offices” (17th century High Renaissance). Basilica di San Marco (11th century) and the Campanile stand out in the background.

The distinct influence of Eastern-style architecture underlines Venice’s connection with Byzantium.
