What you'll do

You can take part to a Tour dedicated to the Basilica of St. Mark. You can walk along the South nave, reach the South transept and discover the mosaic of the rediscovery of the body of St. Mark. The story of the Saint is the heart of the Basilica, and the origin of all around us. From the Prophets' dome and from the apse we will read the mosaics and discover their theological message. You can access to the heart of the Basilica and admire the Golden Altarpiece, and lose yourself into the enamels, gold and precious stones. Admiring the five domes we will continue our travelling into the Byzantine world. And then, you will be led to St. Mark's Square, the Reception Room, as the Venetians say, where they meet to 'far el liston' (stroll around).
