This tour features all of the most beautiful points of St. Mark’s Museum and Cathedral while giving you a unique and wonderful vantage point. See this Venetian masterpiece from above and discover its true beauty.

The tour starts at St. Mark’s Museum. Scale models show how the Basilica was originally built, and you’ll see how it appeared to visitors and worshippers in years past.

St. Mark’s Cathedral is famous for its mosaics, and you’ll have ample time to admire them and see how they were crafted with the help of panels illustrating the time-honored techniques and a presentation. This will be a more private presentation that will take place away from crowds, later in the tour.

Next it is on to the beautiful ancient hall of the Venice Doge’s Palace. This palace houses ancient tapestries that were used in the Cathedral during important liturgical celebrations. A tour that includes magnificent works of art like the mosaics and tapestries would not be complete without a visit to the 4 gilded bronze horses. These are Hellenic Greek masterpieces and are the symbol of the Cathedral.

The grand finale of the tour is in the Cathedral’s lodge. Admire St. Mark’s Square from above; get a beautiful, panoramic view. The guide describes all the main buildings that surround this, Venice’s most famous square.

This unique tour will guide you through the most beautiful points of St. Mark’s Museum and Cathedral while giving you a unique and wonderful vantage point. See this majestic Venetian artwork from above, feeling the emotions of a unique panoramic view and discovering its charming beauty.

Access to the Basilica is only permitted to visitors with suitable attire (no shorts or vest or tops) and backpacks are not allowed for safety reasons.

At the end of the tour you can continue the visit inside St. Mark’s Basilica on your own. Please note that the church closes at 5pm.

The Procuratoria di San Marco reserves the right to PROHIBIT VISITS and access to the basilica at any time and without notice for reasons of force majeure (e.g. high water) and/or safety reasons.

In cases of extra liturgical ceremonies, exceptional high tides or other special occasions, access to St Mark's Basilica may not be permitted and therefore the tour will not take place.

This is a collective tour, which means there might be other participants going on the tour with you.

Please note that, due to the particular morphological structure of Venice and the logistic problems resulting from it, we cannot guarantee that the whole tour is accessible to people with limited mobility. This means that people with walking difficulties and wheelchair users could not be able to access some parts of the itinerary.

The tour is bilingual English/Italian, so explanations are provided in two languages if the audience provenience is mixed: the same information is presented in Italian and then in English, or vice versa, if participants are both Italian and foreigners.

Cancellation Cancellation for this product is free up to 48 hours before the chosen start date - full refund will be given.
If cancelling less than 48 hours before the chosen start date no refund applies.
