Sites you’ll visit

  • Piazza San Marco
  • San Marco Basilica
  • Piazza San Marco represents the very heart of Venice, where to be amazed by different historical architectonical monuments like the Basilica, named after San Marco as well, or the Renaissance buildings along the long sides of the square. But there is something more: did you know that walking in Piazza San Marco actually means to be walking the only square of Venice? The square is always beautiful, also when it is flooded by the water of the lagoon: an unusual and impressive experience for locals and tourists.
  • The most famous church in the floating city was originally exclusively private to the Doge of Venice until 1807 when it became open to the public. Often called "The Golden Church" due to the interior, the external design has a gothic style with influences from Ancient Rome.
