About the St Mark's Basilica Tour

Originally, St Mark's Basilica was the chapel of the Doge, and has only been the city's cathedral since 1807, and this package includes a fully guided tour of San Marco Basilica.

Our tour guide, appointed in accordance with the Curia of Venice, will lead you around this majestic building for a full one-hour tour. You will be able to take in the unique collection of Byzantine art, the gold mosaics and the marble inlays of the floors. As you are led around further, our guide will re-tell the stories of the Basilica whilst you admire the biblical scenes, the history and the other particularities of this ancient cathedral. You will no doubt be in ore of the Pala d'Oro, an exquisite example of the Byzantine art with its thousands of gems and precious stones, and the view of the Treasury, a splendour of the religious art collected along the centuries.

This is the perfect package for honeymooners and couples looking for a romantic and cultural break. To find out more about this themed Venice package, please call a member of our friendly team on (UK) 01223 637331 or (US) 1-347-594-5500, or click here to send an online enquiry.
