Originally San Marco district was called Rivoalto which the name Rialto derives fro mthe heart of the district is Piazza San Marco, which is form many people one of the most beautiful places in the world. For almost a millennium it has been the location of Venice Republic's government. In the square you can visit St. Mark's Basilica and the Bell Tower (St. Mark is the patron of Venice), the Doge's Palaceand Correr Museum.

Saint Mark's Basilica is on the Piazza San Marco and is one of the highlights of a visit to Venice. You are not allowed to carry large bags or rucksacks inside. You must deposit them just round the corner from the main entrance. Filming and photography is forbidden so be prepared in advance. The symbol of St. Mark’s Basilica is a masterpiece of the Greek Hellenistic sculpture: the famous gilded bronze horses. A visit to St Mark’s Basilica is a must! It is renowned worldwide for its priceless treasures and fascinating secret places. Some of them, such as the Baptistery and the Zen Chapel, are usually closed to the public. Admission to the basilica is free, however, the museum upstairs costs €5 and to view the high altar and treasury costs €2.
