If you come to Venice, you will undoubtedly find yourself walking around this lovely area. The area is so packed though so you may want to go to other areas once you’ve had enough. The gelato stores here lol are quite tasty!

Campo San Luca is a small square located a short distance from St Marks. There is a bar (Blackjacks), a tour company (Bucintoro Viaggi), a bank w/ATM, a bakery and a few other shops. We came here to meet up with our tour group.
Our hotel was situated near the Campo San Luca, and is very close to the Grand Canal and the Rialto Bridge. Once we found the area, we walked through this area no less than 10 times. There are a few restaurants and shops, but it's...More
Campo San Luco has many roads into it, it's a lovely little square which I stumbled on when on route to St Marcos square, take a step back and watch locals and tourist hustling away, some great shops around here too.
So buzzy and friendly and the Spritz made with Aperol , orange , huge olive and good humour. Also, the customary free accompanying nibbles. Great service, atmosphere, value, drinks and ----- great cakes too. A thousand times better than the hyped Harry's Bar.
We ended up visiting Campo San Luca a few times during our recent trip to Venice. It is quite centrally located just past Rialto Bridge in the direction of Piazza San Marco. In this square you can find a decent looking bar, called Bar Torino....More

The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and
Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
