Activity Description

Beat the queues on this guided tour of Saint Mark's Basilica, known from the 11th Century onwards by its nickname Chiesa d'Oro (Church of Gold) for its opulent design, gilded Byzantine mosaics and its status as a symbol of Venetian wealth and power.

Our official English-speaking guide will tell you all about the fascinating history of this ancient basilica that was first consecrated in the 11th Century upon the foundations of earlier religious buildings. Highlights includes the Pala d'Oro, the high altar retable, universally recognized as one of the most refined and accomplished works of Byzantine craftsmanship and the Treasury with its splendid collection of religious art.
