"Without a doubt, you MUST see..." Basilica di San Marco Tip by SydneyGal

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

 
 

Without a doubt, you MUST see Basilica San Marco - and I mean not just the outside - you have to go in! Don't let the long lines turn you off either. Basilica San Marco is definitely the best church I have ever been to, it was very impressive. I even liked it over St Peters in Vatican City, to me it was just so much more interesting. Tip: If visiting the Basilica during peak season, arrive 45 min before the Basilica opens in the morning, that way, you'll get in as soon as it opens, rather than having to wait 2 hours with all the other punters!
The photo here is a sample of some of the amazing artwork at the top/outside of the Basilica.
