"Basilica San Marco" Basilica di San Marco Tip by dfactor

Basilica di San Marco, Venice: 248 reviews and 460 photos

  Sideview of Basilica San Marco

One of the most important monument in Venice, and also one of the most beautiful, nice mosaics at the front facade as well.
The basilica is topped with an enormous cupola that is surrounded by several other smaller ones. As with many of the other churches in Italy, the fascade of the church is decorated with marble.
Though I been here twice, I never get the chance to step into the Basilica. The tourist in the summer months is simply overwhelming. Everywhere you go, there are hordes of tourists all over the place.
