"Mosaics" Venice Local Custom Tip by sim1

Venice Local Customs: 332 reviews and 600 photos

  Inside the Basilica di San Marco, Venice
by sim1

A closer look at one of the mosaics, isn't it beautiful! These mosaics have given the basilica the name of Chiesa d'Oro, or the Church of Gold. The light shines through small windows in the domes which reflects off their gilded surfaces, and the walls shine up with a golden light.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
