Basilica di San Marco

Basilica di San Marco (Piazza San Marco 328, San Marco, Venice) – considered one of Venice’s major tourist attractions, this church is the most famous in Venice, and a brilliant example of Byzantine architecture in the world. Located just off the Grand Canal, the basilica faces the Piazza San Marco (St. Mark’s Square) and adjoins the Doge’s (Venetian duke) Palace. It was not always a church – at one time, it was the Doge’s chapel until it became the seat of the Archbishop of Venice in 1807. Below is the schedule and admission prices into the Basilica:
