Summer in Venice...
Take a stroll on the 13th century brick pavement of the Piazza and enjoy the Venetian Sun casting interesting shadows on Byzantine-clad architecture, but come the rainy season is flooding over the Piazza which is also very good for some photographers but not very much for the tourists. 

Piazza San Marco is the principal square of Venice, Italy. It is one of the few great urban spaces in a Europe where human voices prevail over the sounds of motorized traffic, which is confined to Venice's waterways. It is the only urban space called a piazza in Venice; the others, regardless of size, are called campi.

As the central landmark and gathering place for Venice, Piazza San Marco is extremely popular with tourists, photographers, and Venetian pigeons.

The Piazza San Marco is the lowest point in Venice, and as a result during the Acqua Alta the "high water" from storm surges from the Adriatic, or even heavy rain, it is the first to flood. Water pouring into the drains in the Piazza runs directly into the Grand Canal. This is ideal during heavy rain, but during the acqua alta it has the reverse effect, with water from the canal surging up into the Square.
