Evening at the Piazza San Marco was the highlight of our trip. The little "orchestras" on either side of the piazzas are a little corny, maybe, but wonderfully romantic. Every couple in sight was in love again, including us. We had lattes near the Cafe Florian, danced, watched children running with the dogs. It was multo bene!
Dress Code: We were there in mid September and it was cool. Needed a sweater but it was great.
This is the town during the carnival i do not like dressed chickens' party is not of the Venetians and the party of the "farmers "and the marionettes from big gentlemen but poor mans in pocket
"i love farmers"
Dress Code: you do not also need the dress naked he goes only you do well not forget the credit card in beautiful view if he is made of gold.
The cafe's around the St Marks Square are alive at night with people drinking and earting and listening to the small orchestraa, as well as a large number aof wandering people standing behind the cafe area just enjoying the music and ambience for free! The choice is yours!
If money is not the issue then definitely park yourself down and order one of the most expensive coffees/whiskies/wines etc etc that you will ever buy BUT enjoy the surroundings its great especially if you are with your loved one!!
Dress Code: Dress up smart you'll be glad you did
In fact, as you stroll Piazza San Marco you will hear so many bands, competing for your attention. It's free, of course, unless you decide to sit down. It's such a fun atmosphere, people will spontaneously begin dancing or singing.
At night in San Marco Square many of the cafes have live music. They play many things, such as musicals, or classic, or popular older tunes. It's really nice to stand and listen to, just watch out if you decide to sit down and have coffee, a cup can be E8, which amount to $9 roughly. Best thing to do is just stand behind the seating and take in the atmoshere and save yourself the expensive coffe. If you don't mind the price, the coffee is good!
Dress Code: None!
When the sun sets, or even before it. Piazza San Marco excites your senses with the smells of fresh coffee and the sounds of beautiful live music. If you can't afford the coffee just go and sit and listen and bring your bottle of water.
Becareful of the rising tide.
Of course one of the places you have to visit during the day and evening is the Basilica di San Marco.
Its lovely to walk round here with my kids knowing full well they`re completely safe and they can enjoy whole experience.
