Summary


Discover the famous St. Mark’s Basilica, one of the world’s most beautiful cathedral, a masterpiece of Byzantine art shielding countless treasures and legendary stories.

What You Can Expect


The St. Mark’s Basilica is one of the most beautiful cathedrals in the world, as well as the living example of the deep bound of Venice with the eastern world. Since far back in time Venice was the place where Western and Eastern cultures run into each other, a deep bound embodied in this amazing cathedral.
Here, we will learn more about the everlasting history of Venice, about St Mark and how his ruins came to rest and be shielded here. A tour not only to see Venice, but to experience this city through its history and glorious past, still shining in its historical sites and legendary characters. Surrounded by the Basilica’s beautiful golden mosaics and marble inlays, our professional guide will take us along the history and the special features of this unique masterpiece of byzantine art. Among the priceless treasures shielded in the Basilica, we will have the chance to admire the Pala d’ Oro, a fine example of Byzantine art with its thousands of gems and precious stones and, of course, the golden mosaics, maybe the most famous feature of the cathedral.
