Saint Mark's Square: the political and representative heart of Venice
Saint Mark's Square has always been the political and representative heart of the city of Venice. From the Hotel Sant'Elena Venice Saint Mark's Square is easily reachable with a pleasant walk through the Venetian "calli" or with a short vaporetto-ride.
Originally a large field cultivated by the nuns of the convent of San Zaccaria, today Saint Mark's Square is a unique square around which a spectacular series of buildings with a symbolic value, made by the most famous artists of all time, develop.
Actually the square's history is quite similar to the hotel's one: in the past a convent, today completely transformed into a refined and modern 4-stars hotel immersed in the most authentic part of Venice.
