The Golden Basilica - T3

Visit to the interior of the St. Mark’s Basilica and its priceless treasures

The greatness of Venice has always been reflected in the richness of St. Mark’s 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 d’Oro, a golden altar screen encrusted with jewels.

HIGHLIGHTS

•    Enter St. Mark’s Basilica  through the St. Peter’s Door
