Piazzetta (San Marco)

from: Fisheye Venice

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.
