What to expect

The main attraction of Venice, St. Mark’s Basilica took 800 years to build with relics and works of art brought from all over Europe and Asia. Even St. Mark’s remains eventually ended up here when Crusaders stole them from Egypt. The queues here can be long but don't worry, we have skip-the-line access!

Your expert guide will take you inside this cavernous space for an extended tour, pointing out mosaics that date all the way back to the 11th century and beautiful artworks. Then it’s up to the second floor for some stolen time inside this busy basilica. The terraces of St. Mark’s Basilica are worth a visit in their own right, not to mention the incredible views they offer over bustling Piazza San Marco below, the Doge’s Palace and the lagoon.
