St. Mark's Basilica Tours

Witness the jewel of St. Mark's Square: the Church of Gold

St. Mark’s Basilica is located in St. Mark’s Square, the biggest piazza in Venice, and it’s nicknamed “the Church of Gold.” Once you visit, the nickname makes sense: the inside is covered in thousands of meters of gilded mosaics. All the rich decor is a result of treasures shipped back after the conquest of Constantinople in 1204. Although, the most important treasure in the Basilica is the remains of St. Mark which were possibly stolen from Alexandria from the Venetians in 828 AD!

The Basilica is one of the most visited landmarks in Venice, so a skip the line tour is necessary to avoid long lines, especially in the summer months. St. Mark’s is the first stop on many of our Venice tours, so you can learn all about the history of the magnificent church and its piazza with one of our English-speaking expert guides. Our tours get you past the lines and also access to areas you may not have known even exist.
