  The line at Basilica San Marco
by breughel

If you expect to visit the Basilica inside be patient, the queues are very long.
My photo shows the line at 10 h in July. Temperature was 33°C "a l'umbra" and more than 40°C in the sun. We came back around 16 h - the Basilica closes at 17 h - and the line was still long.

Fortunately we have visited the Basilica twenty years ago so that we took the vaporetto to the other side of the Grand Canal and visited in all quietness the most beautiful Santa Maria della Salute.
