"Piazza di San Marco IV" Piazza San Marco Tip by vallarta

Piazza San Marco, Venice: 308 reviews and 511 photos

Inside, the mosaics have earned the basilica of St. Marks the name of Chiesa d'Oro (Church of Gold). Light shining through small windows in the domes reflects off their gilded surfaces, and the walls seem to radiate with golden light. The golden mosaics on the floors, ceilings, and walls cover 4000 square meters.
