Find out how the square changed throughout the Crusades and learn which iconic features, including the Torre dell'Orologio clock tower and the lavish St. Mark's Basilica, were added during subsequent years.

Continue on to get up-close looks at the ornate exterior of the Doge's Palace, known to locals as Palazzo Ducale, following its marbled archways as they lead you to the Grand Canal.
