Discover the famous St Mark Basilica, one of the world's most beautiful cathedral, a masterpiece of Byzantine art in the heart of Venice 

Description:

This guided tour will take us to discover one of the symbols of Venice: The St Mark Basilica.

A tour which will make us marvel in front of the majesty and true beauty of the St Mark Basilica, the place where Eastern and Western architecture run into each other.

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 the Treasury, a splendour of the religious art. And, of course, the golden mosaics, maybe the most famous feature of the cathedral.
