The most complete tour of the top monument in Venice!

Join me for an in-depth visit to the greatest monument of Venice!
I will explain you why and when the wonderful Basilica of St. Mark's was founded. . . Erected in just 31 years and later enlarged, it took us more than 500 years to complete its astonishing decoration.

Enter with me skipping the endless line with the reservation tickets I'll have bought for you and let yourself feel overwhelmed by the magnificent beauty of its 42000 square feet of mosaics and let me explain you their religious and political meanings. Access the area of the Chancel where a sarcophagus contains the holy relics of Saint Mark the Evangelist preserved here since year 828. Follow me to admire the famous Golden Altarpiece visible only to few like you!
Access the upper external terrace where you'll have the most amazing view on St. Mark's Square! From here I'll illustrate you the history and functions of the main sites of the "Piazza".
Admire the original four Horses, stolen by the Venetians in 1204 during the conquest of Byzantium.
