The Basilica di San Marco is a stunning Byzantine-style basilica in the heart of the Piazza San Marco. It is an intriguing blend of architectures and just adds to the beauty of fabulous Venice.

You can enter the main part of the Basilica for free and it is well worth it - the interior is very impressive - lots of gold mosaics. They look particularly spectacular when the sun shines thorough onto them.

Another way to admire the Basilica is to take a seat in the Piazza, and toast to its beauty with a glass of vino or two!
