Basilica Special at noon when the light is on. Church dress -code requested.
This tour is a very complete and unique visit of the Basilica from outside and inside to learn the history and the Byzantine architecture of St. Markâ€™s Cathedral . Â Upon entering, you will be immediately immerged into the bright, golden Byzantine mosaics setting. You will see the Golden Pala Dâ€™oroÂ created by generations of Venetian and Byzantine goldsmiths. The steep and very old staircase will lead us to the Loggia Â with the four Horses Â brought back from Constantinople after the 4th Crusade. From the terrace Â you will have a unique explanation of St. Markâ€™s Square: the Dogeâ€™s Palace, the Bell Tower, the Clock Tower, the Sansovinoâ€™s Â Library, the Napoleonic Wing which today hosts the Correr Museum. This is a magic moment not to be missed!
