The San Marco district lies in the center of Venice. Who hasn’t heard of Piazza San Marco which has been called “The drawing room of Europe”? It’s the only square in Venice to merit the name Piazza, all the others are called Campi. In the words of Wikipedia “As the central landmark and gathering place for Venice, Piazza San Marco is extremely popular with tourists, photographers, and pigeons.”
Given Venice’s relatively small size, you can enjoy San Marco without staying there, but you may wish to take advantage of this great location and stay in the neighborhood. For your convenience we have listed district hotels in approximate order of cost, starting with the least expensive. We have personally verified all hotel websites to make sure that they include English-language pages.

four beds. The Teatro in the name is Teatro La Fenice (the Phoenix) the Venice
Opera House that has twice risen from the ashes. One of the owners was born in
this very house so we are really talking about a family operation. The bed and
breakfast address is Fondamenta della Fenice, San Marco 2554.
The Ca’ dei Dogi
offers six rooms and an attic apartment ensconced in a Fifteenth Century Palace

terraces and wall tapestries and mosaic tiles abound. The hotel address is
