Description

St Mark's Basilica Tickets: Fast Track Access

Venice floats on the genius of its builders, protecting its culture, art, and history from the whims of the sea. However, its treasures reach beyond renown carnival rollicks, and romantic gondola rides down its quaint canals. The city also hides a few jewels of religious significance. In fact, by the construction of St. Mark's Basilica (also known as Basilica di San Marco), Venice brought along the spiritual as well as the material heritage of Byzantium to the West. Today, along with Doges Palace and Piazzetta, the basilica belongs to the top visited landmarks in Venice. Our St Mark's Basilica tickets offer includes fast-track access to the basilica and St Mark's museum that will woo you with 8000 square meters of mosaic covering the walls, vaults, and cupolas or the sight of Pala Doro, the lush retable of the high altar of the church.

Ticket Highlights

Venice is one of the hives your European tourism attracting over 60,000 tourists on a daily basis.

History Sneak Peek

The Basilica di San Marco is essentially Byzantine in its design with a Greek cross layout and mosaics as its naturally integrated element. The mosaic decorations we see today developed through over eight centuries of the Basilicas history.


In fact, the original Saint Marks church, constructed in year 828, was located inside the Doges Palace complex. Venice built the church to house the relics of St Mark the Evangelist (supposedly, Venetian merchants stole them from Alexandria a few years earlier). The church burned down a couple of times. The last time it was rebuilt after a fire was in 1063 when the power of Venetian Republic flourished. The basilica slowly became a symbol of the republics growing power and wealth. The church is particularly famous for its lavish design and gilded mosaics. No wonder its nickname became Chiesa Doro (the Church of Gold). The richness and diversity can also be attributed to Venetian vessels that, upon return for the Orient, always brought something for the Basilica, be it a column, freeze or any other part of an ancient foreign building.


This information is only scraping the surface of basilicas grand history and richness of design. After all, a thousand words won't be enough to substitute a personal experience.
