St. Mark’s Square (Piazza San Marco), often referred to as “the drawing room of Europe,” is one of the most famous squares in Italy. The geographic and cultural heart of Venice—with St. Mark’s Basilica and Doge’s Palace at one end, the campanile in the center, and the colonnaded arcade topped by the Procuratie palaces lining three sides—this elegant piazza is also steeped in history. Settle in at one of the many coveted café tables and watch tourists (and pigeons) pose for photos while you sip a Bellini and soak in the square’s Renaissance splendor.

Once-in-a-lifetime virtual tour in Venice alone RoamFromHome

Due to the international health crisis Overtourism has disappeared in Venice. I want to seize this opportunity to offer all travellers who are unable to see Venice in person a once-in-a-lifetime experience. As a journalist, I shot this short video reportage in a unique time for Venice. Through the video I will show you Venice's most celebrated places.For the very first time you can enjoy these place on your own with no one else besides you. I will let you hear the fascinating and yet uneasy stillness enwrapping Venice and its canals night and day at this particular time. Those of you who have already been to Venice will be filled with awe while virtually seeing these places in a totally different light. Those who have never been to Venice will definitely feel the need to see it in person in a short time. How does it work? Check the calendar, book it and you'll receive a link to enjoy the experience when you prefer (doesn’t matter date and time that you choose on the calendar).
