Piazzetta (San Marco)
This view of the Piazzetta dei Leoncini (a.k.a. the Piazzetta San
Marco), a side branch of the Piazza San Marco that leads to the
waterfront, shows the Campanile or bell tower (left), the Clock Tower and
Basilica (center), and the Doge's Palace.
The Piazzetta also has plenty of pigeons, although
their numbers have declined since pigeon-feeding was outlawed and grain vendors
were banished from St. Mark's Square a few years ago.
