“Not much to see in this square!”
Reviewed March 6, 2012

We stayed near Campo Sant'Angelo and passed through several times during our recent trip in Venice. There was little to see in this particular square or at least little to grab our attention as we wondered through it. You can visit the nearby Campo Santo Stefano, which has similar appearance but is perhaps twice its size and offers more in the form of sit down cafes, even a couple shops and church visit.

What we liked about Campo Sant' Angelo was that there was plenty of space, something that is much needed after hours of dealing with crowds in the San Marco area and the small winding streets of Venice. Its nice to stretch your legs a bit and have some distance between yourself and others, this you can do at this square.

We also watched a couple of participants dressed in costume and mask for the Carnivale celebrations posing for photographers here one afternoon. This was sort of fun. However, there were dozens of participants doing the same in the Piazza San Marco area, most of the time.

Overall, Campo Sant' Angelo was a spacious but forgettable square, not one we'd target for visitation in Venice. Just give it a glance as you pass through.
