The Treasures Of St. Mark’s Square


treasures of saint marks square - general view L



Visiting St. Mark’s Square is a must when traveling to Venice with your family. Avoid long lines and boring cultural visits,  and let your private guide show you how fascinating and beautiful this square really is

After a brief introduction and a look at the outside of the Doge’s Palace, it is time to enter what was once the heart of Venetian politics. From the Palace’s courtyard to the Chamber of the Great Council, Europe’s largest room, by way of the creepy prison, our private, fully licensed guide will tell you all about the history and secrets of this iconic palace, while keeping the young ones fully engaged.

A visit to Saint Mark’s Basilica is also part of the program. After looking at its peculiar facade and golden mosaics, skip the line and enter this holy place, which still hold the remains of St. Mark the Evangelist. Get a chance to go behind the altar and gaze at the precious altarpiece, “Il Pala d’Oro”.

Finally, discover the secrets of the Bell Tower, the Campanile and the buildings around the iconic square from the outside (visits inside these areas are not included in this tour).

A visit to Venice without discovering the treasures of St. Mark’s Square would simply not be complete…
