St Marks Basilica:
Discover the greatest of Venice’s monuments and save your greatest admiration for the Basilica’s most precious possession – the eye-popping Pala d'Oro, an exquisite altar screen made from hundreds of pieces of enamel stuck onto gold leaf and enriched precious gems. The iconic church majestically symbolizes the lagoon and enshrines the city’s history and Saints relics.

A gondola ride down the famous Grand Canal is the perfect way to appreciate the vibrancy and charm of the city of Venice.
