On this self-audio-guided tour, soak up the pure exquisiteness of the St. Mark’s Basilica of Piazza San Marco. It’s also known as the ‘Golden Basilica’ because of its infinite mosaic paneling made of pure gold. With your skip-the-line privileges and a detailed audio guide in English, French, Spanish, Italian, and German (to download onto your phone), learn all about the history and artworks of this world-famous cathedral so integral to the heart of Venice.

Gaze in wonder at the arches and turrets of the exterior facade of this golden masterpiece. Rich in Byzantine art and 43,000 square feet of mosaic alone, you’ll also observe marble inlays on the floors, marble pillars, and the uniquely small windows of the Basilica. The gold and blue hues of the ceiling mosaics stand out the most. Listen to interesting legends and anecdotes about the stories behind the Biblical scenes painted on the interiors and the colorful embellishments and statues and paintings of animals, and learn how artists created these incredible works of art in 1060. If you wish, sit on a bench and quietly take in this unforgettable monument of great artistic vision at your pace.
