Know More about this tour

The greatness of Venice has always been reflected in the richness of St. Marks Basilica, the perfect synthesis of Venetian art and a unique blend of Byzantine, Romanesque and Gothic elements.
Five Oriental-looking domes crown the shadowy, mysterious interior gleaming with golden mosaics, coloured marbles, precious stones and pearls, and guarded by the four gilded bronze horses that stand proudly atop the central entrance.
The glittering mosaics of the interior tell the story of St. Mark and episodes from the Bible. Its most famous treasure stands behind the altar in the sanctuary - the Pala dOro, a golden altar screen encrusted with jewels.

  • The beginning of the tour was hectic and disorganized. We were divided into groups and ushered to another location, where we waited. No one explained what was going on, even when asked. Our group waited 40 minutes before we met our guide and were led inside St Marks Basilica. Once inside, the tour was very good.

  • A great way to see the basilica without waiting in the long lines. Tour guide was very knowledgeable. So beautiful and so much history!

  • I really loved the whole square around the Basilica there were other museums and restraunts that I would have liked to seen but we had the guided tour booked so we did that. It was a very packed church so it was good that we were with a group and could skip the lines but because the size of our group and the packed nature of the church we kept loosing people. The tour guide was quite fast and moved along regardless of weather or not you caught what she said or were up with the rest of the group. Also you couldnt take photos in most of it so that was kind of a bummer. If you can get in without a long line and just wander through yourself you will have more time to see the other great sights in the area. There is ALOT to see.

  • A must-see for all visitors to Venice. The advantage of doing it with a guide is that you don't have to queue up for hours with the general public as you have a pre-booked appointment, and you have someone telling you all about what you are looking at. Our guide was very knowledgeable and was able to ensure that everyone in the group around 20 was able to make the most of their visit even with limited mobility. You have a radio set and an ear piece and can hear the guide clearly all the way round. The Golden Altarpiece is included in the guided tour and is well worth a visit. Lovely views from the balcony and don't skip the museum either for an extra 5 euros.
