Napoleon described Piazza San Marco as the most beautiful hall in Europe.
This square is known everywhere in the world for the phenomenon of high water. Being one of the lowest points in the city, the lagoon water begins to invade the square during high tide times and visitors are forced to walk on catwalks or wear rubber boots.
The Basilica has been at the center for years of religious and public life in Venice. The mosaics that decorate the walls of Piazza San Marco represent the political power of Venice. The gold dowels were placed in a slightly angular position, in order to reflect the light from every corner.
