St. Mark's Basilica and its treasures
Exclusive opening after hours of the St. Mark’s Basilica with scenic illumination of the mosaics

Saint Mark’s Basilica is Venice’s major must-see.
Crowded with visitors during the day, the Basilica becomes a silent temple of worship as the evening falls. You will have the privilege to enjoy an evening tour after the church has closed to the general public. Its distinguishing Byzantine character appears particularly on the great mosaics illustrating St. Marco's tales, as well as the scenes of the Old and New Testament. You will better appreciate them by way of the dramatic illumination. 

Meeting point: in front of the Entrance of the Cathedral 
Price per person: Euro 49,00 
Duration: approx 1 hour 

Minimum participation is required to operate the tour.

Advance reservation is requested.

Please book your tour within November 08, 2016
