San Marco is one of the six sestieri (neighborhoods) of Venice, set in the very heart of the city. It is known primarily as the home of the eponymous Piazza San Marco (St. Mark's Square) and other notable locations, such as Saint Mark's Basilica, the Doge's Palace, Harry's Bar, the Palazzo Dandolo, San Moisè, the La Fenice theatre, the Palazzo Grassi and several churches. Once the seat of the Venetian government, the district is densely packed with many hotels, banks and expensive shops prompted, as of lately, by the influx of tourists. In large part, San Marco makes Venice what it is and, as such, demands exploration!
