Saint Mark’s Basilica Guided Tour

Saint Mark’s Basilica Guided Tour

The Golden basilica: that’s how St.Mark’s church is called. A beautiful cathedral built during a thousand year that preserves an invaluable treasure made of golden mosaics. Discover the history and the secrets of one of the most beautiful cathedrals in the world during a one-hour tour with a local expert.

Meet your local guide in Piazza San Marco and discover the Saint Mark’s Basilica during a 1-hour express guided tour. This golden jewel will leave you speechless and you will never forget the feeling of being inside the most terrific basilica of Venice. This is the Venetian heart of Catholicism that in Italy is part of everyday life.

This extraordinary church preserves the body of Saint Mark and, the glory around him, created a real cult. Your local guide will tell you more about Mark the evangelist and his symbol that you can find everywhere in the city: the lion. Continue your visit admiring the golden domes and learning more about Bizantine stylish of the Basilica.

Finally, reach St.Mark museum and the panoramic terrace to admire the amazing view on Saint Mark’s square, called “Europe’s living room”, thanks to the elegance of the buildings and for the people who gather everyday in this beautiful place. Your guide will tell you about the story of the horse statues located on the top of the Basilica and you’ll see the city from a completely different point of view. A real must-do experience.
